The City of Hamilton clearly needs to do more to protect public safety than just install 40 km/h speed limit signs on Queen Street South

I agree. This is a good location for the City of Hamilton to designate as a Community Safety Zone and implement Automatic Speed Enforcement (ASE). The Ontario legislation for Automatic Speed Enforcement received Royal Assent on May 30, 2017. The Ontario government is currently working on regulations to enable cities such as Hamilton to use ASE in school zones and Community Safety Zones. This should be in place in the spring/summer of 2018.

Police cannot be present all the time. ASE can. I venture to predict that when the probability of being caught and fined is 100%, there will be an immediate and sharp decline in motor vehicle operators engaging in this extraordinarily dangerous behaviour.
