Good point. As a rule of thumb, it should be easy to cross the LRT corridor.

While any able-bodied person can easily jaywalk across a non-fenced LRT corridor much like today's TTC Spadina or St. Clair corridor -- we need sufficient pedestrian crossings especially for the mobility-impaired. While crossing an LRT corridor (away from official crossings) entails increased risk on a pedestrian who decides to do such -- the LRVs do stop as fast as an articulated bus.

People already jaywalk a much-more-dangerous Main/King corridor today, and there will be a vehicle on a track only once every 4 minutes, rather than continuous surges of cars. On average, the risk will be lower, as much as the NOLRT people claims "LRVs are super dangerous" without comparing with today's dangerous traffic on Main/King...
