I don't think this would net me enough votes!

In all seriousness, though, I live in this area (I know, I shouldn't tell people where I live) and while I do occasionally see drivers make a mistake and head right without completely stopping, or without checking the crosswalk a second time, I also see a great deal of seniors, students and othe citizens doing their best Usain Bolt impression against a flashing or solid orange hand.

It's a difficult area, to be sure, at certain times of the day - but overall, I don't think this area needs that red restriction. Limeridge Mall, Fortinos, and other retailers are in that area, and motorists need to clear Mall Rd at that stop light.

In my time writing against (pointedly, in most cases) RTH, I've noticed that the user base seems to be decidedly on the side of "If you're in a car, and I'm not, and we have a conflict, the car and the street and the speed limit and the [you name it] is the problem. Why? Isn't that an unfair stance to have?

Anyways, thanks for the mention. Later, strangers.
