We have a car in our household and one of us travels to the GTA west for work. Still, I don't see the logic in your argument. In the warmer months of the year I use my bike to get around. I walk my daughter to and from school. When I can I walk to Food Basics for groceries. I don't expect you or anyone else to do that, but why shouldn't i be able to without worrying about being hit by a car. Many drivers are careful, but a portion are concerned about nothing more than making "good time". It is about priorities, as you say. Mine are on the side of safety for all users of the street. Where are yours?

The big welcome signs are hideous and unnecessary, but i don't agree that "nobody" likes the chokers and bump-outs. You don't and perhaps 400 other people. There are 5000 of us. Half the audience yesterday indicated they supported the concept of the chokers and bump-outs. The temporary traffic sticks are ugly, but are slated to be replaced with something more visually appealing once their final design and placement is determined by the pilot. The same goes for the loss of parking spots, and the new no-turn signs. If the plan's creating unforeseen and unnecessary problems then some changes should be looked into.
