And at the end of it all, we've got umpteen documented cases of SIGNIFICANT lane reductions (albeit 'temporary' - like King & "I swear I'm going to do construction on the burned out former apartment building") and yet, traffic seems to continue to flow.

Have the beknighted traffic engineers considered the total /effective/ lanes on Main between Dundurn and Queen - where even the city's own vehicles (HSR buses) cannot drive between the dashed lines? It may be marked for 5, but the best you can hope for is 3 and one of those is often full of parked cars.

If the city (and its citizens) were honest with themselves, they'd see that mixed use streets are the ones they prefer -- not the urban highways overloaded with transport trucks (who could use the highways built for them) and the "through" traffic at 65-75km/h (on Cannon).

ARGH.
