Not sure if anyone's noticed this, but that section of road is a drag-race strip. Motorists take off like bats out of Hell, zipping up the stretch from James to Bay. The kicker is that -I believe- the speed limit here is 40K/h, something I've never, ever seen enforced. The 'expected' experience by motorists is to be able to gun it from Wellington to Queen without interruption. Both absurd and ridiculous.

On a connected topic, I was at the Ward 1 Candidates' Evening last night. And of course, the topic of converting (reverting) one-way streets came up. (As it did last week at the Ward 3 event.) It always saddens me when people have no discernible grasp of history, of the realities of traffic movement, or even the notion of positive change. Further, that they don't seem to have the ability to actually discuss this stuff.
