absolutely fantastic comment.

Again, I echo my earlier suggestions for very quick and rather easy low hanging fruit: no right on red city-wide, and on all main streets, walkable retail districts, transit stops, school crossings and rec centre/library zones install the sidewalk facing street lights that have recently been installed on the new portion of West 5th near Mohawk College and Main St in front of city hall.

I saw two Sir John A MacDonald students almost get hit today by a red-light runner making a left from York onto Bay. The light had been red for at least 6-7 seconds. Driver didn't even attempt to stop, or look left. Just looked right to make sure no cars were coming along Bay northbound. Thankfully the students must be used to walking in this city and were very attentive and stayed on the sidewalk seeing this lunatic coming.
Had they been hit, the media and councillors would be asking 'were they wearing iPods?' or 'students need to pay more attention and not be goofing around all the time'. etc.....
