I'm in favour of a pedestrian scramble at this intersection (where all vehicles stop for pedestrians).

When leaving Fortino's on foot I usually run across King like a madman, unless I'm with the kids then I meander around the ridiculous three cross-walks.

Let us also not forget about the drivability fail here too. If you are driving from Fortino's and want to travel north on Breadalbane you have to drive straight across several lanes of traffic - at precisely the right time. I feel a little guilty each time I do it but since I can't turn north onto Dundurn from the Fortino's parking lot [what were they thinking when they designed that?] I feel I am forced, or at least encouraged, to do it. It is traffic design decisions like these that gives Hamilton a bad name.
