One of the suggestions being bandied about on how to improve pedestrian safety in the GTA is to follow Montreal's lead and outlaw right turns on red lights.
That at least is the profferred reason why car-hating David Miller, Toronto's Mayor of Some of the People Except Those who Own Cars has instituted a no-right-on-red trial here in the City.
(Maybe he hates turning right under any circumstances hahaha a little political joke there...).
In a story on this topic on Page GT1 last Thursday, The Star showed data on pedestrian deaths per 100,000 population for major Canadian urban areas.
Calgary was lowest at 0.73. NOBODY walks in Calgary.
Vancouver was highest at 1.73. NOBODY drives in Vancouver.
Are you catching my drift here?
Ottawa - lot of walkers there when it isn't frozen solid - 1.23.
Toronto is 1.16, lowest apart from Calgary.
Oh yeah, we can learn at lot from them.
