I sincerely hope this article saves a life. This area is a nightmare for pedestrians, cyclists, kids, the disabled, and also features (IMHO) the rudest and most aggressive parking lot in the city.

The one thing I'd add is the North side of King leading up to the intersection. Between the bus stops, cars hoping to get onto the highway, Tim Hortons, upcoming Esso (mentioned above) and people hoping to turn, it's a nightmare to bike. A few of us experienced cyclists simply use the second lane, but whichever way you look at it, approaching the bridge bike lane this way is hair-raising. And while some might simply ride on the sidewalk, it's also one of the leading spots (more than any other for those I know) for sidewalk accidents as people turn into the Tim Hortons.
