600 Fleet St Toronto, ON
I have lived near Bathurst and Lake Shore for 23 years. There has always been a 'No Left Turn' sign stopping left turns from Bathurst onto Fleet St. except for TTC vehicles. This has been respected for many years. However, with the growth of condos along Fleet St., this sign is abused on a regular basis. To prove my point, I stood at the corner of Fleet and Bathurst on July 30. I stood there for only an hour, 4.15 to 5.15. During that time, no fewer than 52 vehicles made illegal turns onto Fleet. I have at least three photos of each car making the illegal turn with license plate numbers. I have not seen a police presence here in 10 years. I once discussed a TTC street car driver about the whole intersection problem. His opinion was that the police have given up. I hope to include a few photos, but if I can't, I can produce them at any time.

Eglinton Avenue West And Menin Road Toronto, Ontario
Wondering if you could give us a hand. They've started to do the Crosstown LRT lane restrictions on Eglinton, and they've put a no left-turn sign from Eglinton westbound onto Menin Road. But here's the problem, Menin is one way southbound from Eglinton, and there is already a right-turn restriction from Eglinton eastbound during rush hours. So ... that means for five hours each day, there is no way legal way to actually drive onto the street, since we can't legally turn right or left onto it, and of course, we can't drive northbound. Ooops.
I'm a big fan of the Crosstown, so I'm not complaining about the lane restrictions; I know we have to go through a little pain for the big gain, but making it legally impossible to get onto the street is a bit of problem.
(PS - I know there's a narrow laneway that cuts across south of Eglinton, but it's often blocked with deliveries, so it's not a viable single point of access we can rely on.). Thanks

Southeast corner, the City of Toronto snow plow workers put a big pile of snow in front of the street pole that has the push button for the walk signal. Signal won't activate unless button is pushed. Fell once trying to get to the button.
Please send someone out to remove this pile of snow. Thanks!

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.

3785 Lawrence Avenue East Toronto, Ontario
Signage from when the roads were being paved has been left at the intersection. What was once a tall information sign is now a brolen hazard and an eyesore to boot. I would have taken a picture, but it was too cold to get my phone from my coat pocket

Oxton/Oriol Park Toronto, Ontario
The stop sign southbound on Oxton at ORIOLE PARKWAY was introduced a couple of years after the intersection had been designed to permit traffic to flow though the intersection on a dedicated lane without stopping. This doubled the volume of traffic on the arterial road and reduced the flow of commuters going through a residential neighbourhood. The STOP sign has prevented the redesigned intersection from functioning. What a waste! The consequence is rush hour traffic backs up the arterial road well past Chaplin in the morning rush. It took a decade to reconfigure this intersection and the Avenue Road/Oxton intersection with the final design implemented in 2000. The result was far fewer accidents especially rear enders on Oxton in the afternoon. I have tried to get the City and councillors to explain why this Stop sign was installed, to no avail. I hope you have better luck. Its removal would be a boon to commuters, residents and air quality. Oxton holds about 25 southbound vehicles in gridlock. If it were allowed to flow, it would take twice as many vehicles and reduce flow into the local road portion of Avenue Road. Thanks in advance for your help. J Newell 774 Avenue Road.
The Queensway And Islington Avenue Toronto, ON
The curb lane of the North West corner of The Queensway and Islington was a right turn lane with an arrow on the pavement and a sigh on a post. Both are missing now leading to drivers confusion. People in the neighbourhood still assume it is for right turns. Other drivers think it is the lane they need to be in to cross the street and enter the highway on ramps. Now we have two lanes of cars crossing The Queensway trying to enter the highway leading to near fender benders.
Is it a right turn lane or the lane for drivers entering the on ramps?
There should be signs posted to let people know.

16 Sheppard St Toronto, ON
Sheppard St. is a major route between Richmond, Adelaide and Temperance. It's signed for no-parking anytime but it's NEVER ENFORCED. I even saw an unoccupied parking authority car parked there last week! So it's reduced to one lane for 2 way traffic, especially in the morning. Please send the parking police and a tow truck for a week to clean it up.
