Overgrown trees blocking speed limit warning sign. On Lakeshore Blvd where it crosses the Humber River the speed liam goes up to 70km and then back down to 60km. The sign warning that the speed limit is dropping is obscured by trees. This is a favorite fishing hole for Toronto Police looking to write speeding tickets. With the current setup it screams entrapment
S. Kinsway/Queensway Toronto, Ontario
A couple of years ago an additional set of traffic lights was added for pedestrians corssing to the new streetcar stop on Queensway opposite S. Kinsway ramp. When anybody presses a button on either side of the Queensway or S. Kinsway, when the lights change all traffic stops in both directions, even though the pedestrian may be crossing only the opposite carrriageway. Can't understand why there is even a need for traffic lights at this point for anyone. Pedestrian crosswalk would be perfectly adequate for any crossing but if lights are deemed necessary then why do they have to stop traffic on the carriageway where nobody is crossing.
Additional point, when travelling east on Queensway, you can't see the light until you are nearly on it as it is hidden by the bridge. This is one place where one of the advanced warning signs might be useful, instead of having them in places where the serve no useful purpose (e.g. Gardiner exit ramp to Park Lawn)
2029 Lake Shore Blvd W Toronto, ON M8V, Canada
There is only one lane here to turn and it is far too infrequent. It is two green lights before a left turn signal is permitted. This causes many cars to be backed up and should be every green light. This will also improve volume at Parkside Drive as many will resort to turning there.

The north side of Bishop east of Yonget is immediately adjacent to the subway and the Regional bus terminal. That area is signed "No Stopping". In evening rush hour the street is lined with vehicles waiting for passengers (despite the No Stopping" signs).. Drivers are even double parking to pick up/drop off passengers. It is extremely difficult to drive westbound towards Yonge Street and several times I have seen near misses when parked drivers force their way into traffic. As well, it is extremely frustrating to be in the curb lane inching toward Yonge and have the driver ahead of you put on their hazard flashers and park leaving you effectively blocked until an opening to proceed westbound.
I have asked police officers to tag and they reply it's a By-law offense. City By-law office advises it a police matter.
128 Fern Ave Toronto, ON
This is a follow up to today's story on unneeded stop signs that were left in place because they had been 'asked for'. My question is how many people are required to sign on to a request before it is acted on, and is the subsequent outcome ever reevaluated either by the city or querying those who made the request?
For instance, on my street there are no speed bumps, but I live in fear that someone will make a request and one day they will appear - though there seems no reason why they would be needed. On nearby Sourauren Avenue, which I must navigate to reach my home on a one-way street, there is an almost laughable profusion of stop signs and speed bumps. I wonder if anyone has ever checked if perhaps a few fewer bumps and stops might do just fine?

This stump of a traffic sign post is a dangerous sidewalk obstruction. It can easily cause a severe injury to someone's leg or cause an abrupt fall on the face.
River Street Off Bayview Extension Toronto, Ontario
there is a big hole at the corner of river street and gerrard street that is fenced off. it says construction underway but evey day i drive by and there is nothing happening. it has reduced traffic to one lane and the line up to get up river to get into gerrard street or down river street further is frustrating. what construction is being done and when will it finish?
University Ave. across from Canada Life, Toronto, ON
A fire hydrant, across from the Canada Life building on University Ave. is set back about 6-7 m from the roadway at the hedge and is difficult to notice. Many drivers park facing it and receive heavy fines. If access to the fire hydrant is important, the City should make it easy to avoid parking near it by painting the curb yellow, and/or adding "No Parking Between Signs" warning. Instead, the city keeps collecting fines several times a day.
