Winter is absolutely the safest time on our downtown street. Cars are forced to give way to oncoming traffic and drive slow due to the piles of snow/ice. Soon enough spring will be here and we'll be warning our kids about being out front as morons do 75km/hr through a residential neighbourhood.

Interestingly enough, I haven't seen one letter to the editor of the Spec complaining how hard it is to get around now that people can't speed down Peter St or Cannon/Wilson. I use Cannon/Wilson several times a week and much of this winter it has had 1 less lane than usual due to snowbanks and deep snow on the actual roadway. Many days we've travelled about 40-45km/hr along Wilson to work. No problem at all. Everyone has gotten to where they are going and my trip times only increased by a minute to a minute and a half. We should engineer these streets to function like this all year.
