I was just talking to someone who has footage of at least 50 cars running the nearest red light to his home. And it's a major downtown intersection. If anyone actually thinks drivers downtown don't break the law on a VERY continuous basis, they're fooling themselves.

The kind of victim-blaming scorn being heaped on people who walk here is just like what cyclists saw around here - until a recent City of Toronto study showed that cars are at fault in ~90% of cases.

I have yet to see a single source that actually points toward pedestrians as "at fault" in all or nearly all collisions. Nor have I seen a lick of evidence that this kind of police enforcement increases safety.
