Yes, that's been my experience too. Living near King and Nash, it take approximately 30 minutes to get to and from downtown Dundas, which is a semi regular trip for me. Then one day I googled the trip to show fastest route as opposed to shortest, and lo and behold, the RHVP/LINC route was faster by 10 minutes, taking only a total of 20.

I've also found that regular route for downtown or waterfront is RHVP to Burlington St., and again, much faster than using King and Main.

There simply is no overriding reason, in 2012, for King and Main to be the freeways they have been, especially with the advent of the LINC/RHVP and the burgeoning real time traffic/GPS technology that is upon us.
