I'm sorry, but all these ideal scenarios where everyone will give up there cars because the hassle of traffic is too much, is ridiculous! Anyone that knows Hamilton, knows we've been through some outrageously unpredictable and sometimes painfully cold winters. I have a 2 & a half year old son and he loves to go outside no matter what. Now that's fine when it's not - 30 C with the wind chill. Getting around downtown used to be very stress free. Anyone that got lost was high or stupid. Now myself and many others I've spoken to, deliberatley avoid the core(more than ever for some). For the 1st time in the 20 years I've been driving(a lot) in this city, I've turned down a street the wrong way because it was a 'section' that wasn't one way. COME ON! You want a pollution free city with more community spirit? Ban all drive thru's! How is fast food, fast when you and 600 other cars all over the city are waiting(IDLING), on sometimes beautifull days, for their double double? Gone is the go to the local ma & pa diner and chat with your beat cop. There needs to be massive things simultaneously done to the downtown core to turn it around completely, too many to post in this already HUGE post. To summerize, 2 way streets make for a very unhappy and frustrated citizen, looking for at least one thing in his life to be simple.
