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.
09/17/2014 SO FAR NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE. The city keeps saying it's on order but I get no feedback from them.
20-54 Evelyn Crescent Toronto, Ontario
Clendenan—the street Ravina Gardens Park is on—is misspelled on one side of the official City of Toronto park sign as "Clenedenan." (Or at least it was as of a month or so ago.) What's funny is that on the other side of the sign, it was originally misspelled too, but it looks like a sticker with the correct spelling was affixed on top of the misspelled street name.

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.
699 Sheppard Ave E Toronto, ON
Often during rush hours, the east-westbound traffic will start traffic light countdown but then change back to walk signal even though there are vehicles waiting to make a left on to Sheppard Ave. Have often waited as long as five minutes before being able to make a left turn.

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.

Missing the "no left turn" signs at the stop sign from southbound DVP to northbound Don Mills Rd. Cars holding up rush hour traffic trying to take a left turn onto extremely busy roadway.
Lake Shore Boulevard West & Gardiner Expressway Toronto, ON, Canada
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)
