Normally, no one speeds on this particular road-- it ends at a footpath that leads into Gage Park. (me, above, referring to Montclair)

You know, when we walked by the crash site, it looked as if the crash was took place on Grosvenor (just around the corner from Montclair)-- a north-south route that leads to Lawrence Road at the south and King St. E at the north. I should have posted here to clarify that.

The thing is, our immediate neighbourhood is pretty driveable, walkable and bikeable for the most part, and the people who live around here behave politely and safely. The problem lies on the Lawrence Road and King St. East expressways- lots of speeding goes on there, and sometimes cars use the north-south routes through our neighbourhood as a detour to one of these two roads. It's not the design within our neighbourhood itself that is at fault-- rather, the problem lies in all the factors that converge to encourage speeding on the perimeter: the speeding sometimes spills over and past our front yards. This time, it was a getaway car.
