Well isn't that large, confusing, complicated, sign just 'Special'. Did they need to install a bigger pole to install it?

(We are 1 1/2 blocks, or 150 yards from an entrance to 3 elementary schools & we could not get a 40K per hour sign, or a School Zone sign, cuz "It's too expensive!")

Those 40K. signs are common, probably in stock with the GHA roads dept., & way less expensive to produce than that 'posted instructions, mini-booklet" you have up there.-??

If you have lots of pedestrian traffic, it's time to control the flow of vehicles & their speed, not try to teach the peds how to avoid being squashed!

The Only thing that's going to get City Hall thinking about traffic & methods other than driving, is if we have a number of total gridlock incidents, like we had last Summer.

(2 accidents on opposite ends of the GHA 403, & a few on the Link, equaled Total Gridlock from Brantford, to Burlington, to Niagara for over 6 hours.)

I guess it's going to take a few more of those before anybody notices that there is a problem, since people getting hurt or killed on foot doesn't seem to resonate?
