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)

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.

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.
Yonge And Sheppard Toronto, ON
I doubt you can fix this problem, but perhaps you can help fix my seething frustration with at least three years' worth of late night suspension of subway service north of Eglinton on the Yonge line. Signs now say work will be completed on "tunnel maintenance" in "late 2013". Problem is, the signs have been amended frequently to add a year at a time . Yes, there is shuttle service provided. That means tired shift workers or students or people who might just think it shuld be possible to avoid turning into a pumpkin if they stay at the ball past midnight, have to get off the train, schlep down hallways to the bus platforms, wait, board a bus that is often crowded. Then, that same bus has to lumber into each subway station on the trip N., making the homeward journey much longer. And many patrons must then board another bus or subway to finish their trip. What's going on? We're all familiar with jobs taking longer than anticipated, but YEARS longer? What does "tunnel maintenance" mean: armies of concentrated workers descending to get as much done from the instant the trains stop running, or a single guy with a mop and a pail and some crack filler who shows up for a shift on Thursdays? There's been no info available. When I ask TTC staff, they tell me they don't know any more than I do.
I begin to suspect the TTC figures it is just on to a good thing, as there seems not to have been muc protest or resistance, and now it becomes just the way things are. Cost saving? Then at least be honest and say this is an ongoing plan.
I kept looking at the signs saying "late 2012" thinking, "okay, at least the nonsense is finally coming to a close". Then the changes were quietly made to read "late 2013".
Bizarre. Unsatisfactory. An awful lot of people do live N. of Eglinton.
Many thanks for anything you can find out. You provide a great service. Patricia Casey
