We moved to this city 12 years ago,and have been reading about Hamilton being "on the cusp" for that long.

When we re-located, the deleterious effects of one-way traffic on King and Main were immediately apparent. As people who live in the lower city and who need to navigate around here by car (not just to Stoney Creek and back), the one way streets are a constant source of frustration- people drive them like freeways to get from one end of the city to the other, without a concern for those of us who need to change lanes to turn on to a side street for some reason- if we can't get over safely, we miss our turn and end up having to double back a greater distance then we would have to if the traffic was two-way. How, exactly,is this efficient?

How much longer are we going to let King St. East limp along without fixing traffic flow to encourage people to actually stop their cars and shop or eat? 12 more years?

Our oldest two have gone back to Toronto, third one seriously considering following suit-- some days, I can't say I blame them.
