Interestingly, the advent of SoBi means that we now have much more detailed and solid data on bike movements than car movements for a relatively large proportion of all cyclists!

For years there has been a debate about how much traffic is cut through (e.g. on Main St from the 403 to QEW across the lower city, to take an extreme example, or in local neighbourhoods). There are also questions about how much extra travel time/distance the one way system causes for motorists trying to navigate to destinations within the one-way grid (wards 1-3).

We can't answer these questions definitively because we don't have routes or even origin/destination data for cars, all we have are rarely done intersection counts and google maps indications of how busy certain streets are at different times of day.
