I’ve encountered this problem (I mean, almost been hit by cars) at this intersection, and I find this to be an issue in Hamilton generally. I guess the number of people on foot do not justify motorists looking both ways. If you are walking “upstream” on some streets, each intersection can pose the risk of a motorist hitting you because he or she is only watching for vehicle traffic from the opposite direction.

This is off-topic, I know, but I just love to tell everyone about Charlton/Dundurn. The stop sign there is apparently optional, so it makes it worse, and I am either cut off (or have someone proceed on his right turn while I am already in the intersection) a few times a week.

Anyway, I don’t know how this behaviour can be modified, but the lights at Caroline/Herkimer do nothing about the issue. A ‘No Left’ signal of some sort (even though it shouldn’t be needed) would work.
