...that Toronto City Council is considering banning right turns on red lights.
Are they out of their friggin' MINDS??
I just drove from Quebec City back to TBS (The Big Smoke) through Montreal.
Not too long ago Quebec overturned their province-wide ban on right turns on red, but enabled municipalities to pass their own bans, which the city of Montreal did.
It is a nightmare.
You sit there for what seems like hours, even at three in the morning, waiting for a green.
They say it is to protect pedestrians.
Hey - if they don't like the way we drive they should stay off the sidewalks.
OK, that's a dumb joke.
But the way it works when there IS pedestrian traffic - i.e. other than three in the morning - is that the cars wait and wait for the green, and when they get it, they're GONE.
It causes more danger than ever because the drivers have been waiting for what seems like hours, and they're in a hurry because they can't turn when there IS no competing pedestrian traffic.
This is absolute nonsense.
Now we know Mayor David Miller and his cohorts hate cars.
We have to let them know that drivers vote too.
Contact your councillor and scream blue bloody murder.
This has to be stopped.
