Don't know if anyone caught the 70's show on CHML today. The bellbottoms and mullets were pretty awesome. Terry Whitehead said, and I quote: "the future is NOW".

Referring to widening the expressways. Apparently we need 5 decades of studies and delays before we invest a cent into transit or cycling, but a city councillor with zero city-building expertise can simply declare that it's time for a $100 million project with zero studies, data, info or possible solutions.

The metered entry ramp suggestion above is a great one, and I've long wondered why we don't do this here. When I lived in the U.S. in the 90's they were all over the place on busy freeways. And by busy, I mean busy. Not these free flowing roadways our 70's show call congested.

Even Mississauga has metered entry ramps. Much simpler short term solution instead of blowing more money we don't have.
