One side of the story?
First off, we know the road on the right in our video is a condo driveway, which skews things.
There’s no doubt the final tally would be a lot different at, say, Yonge and Dundas Sts.
Also, if we set up a video looking for motorists breaking the law by blocking bike lanes or squeezing cyclists into the curb, you can bet it’d be just as easy to do.
In fact, a recent video out of New York shows the madness that a city intersection really can be, if you take the long view.
Say what you will, though, about our video — it proves not even “quiet” roads are 100 per cent safe. One cyclist almost gets clipped by a vehicle coming out of the driveway.
And according to the law, a red light is a red light is a red light, no matter where.
So the question is, should the location of the red light dictate whether you stop at it or not?
