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?

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

With the closure of Cherry St.. from Front to Lakeshore, access to Lakeshore from the Distillery District has become very congested. A left turn signal at the Parliament & Lakeshore traffic light for vehicles wanting to go east, would greatly improve traffic flow.
2050 Keele St Toronto, ON
The pathway to a school has a speed sign on it saying "50kph begins". It is at the west side of 2050 Keele St. on the north side. Can I drive down the path/ road? Is this really a road? Also two of the path lights are not working. They have not worked in months. So is a road that only big 4x4's can use? There is no way out unless you can get down the stairs or across the astro turf to the street. This has to be the most stupid speed sign ever! Are student not permitted to run more than 50kph? Jack this has to take the cake on been stupid! There is the same sign very close to the road but faces the right direction...southbound. The path sign faces east to west! Did Ford put it up? Also next to the path is one of those blue donation box's that I think is on city property. The cloths deposited there are sorted into cotton and other types and then are sold as rags. Read the signs on the box. No furniture or shoes I think. These boxes are a scam to just make money. Mr. Lakey get this fixed please or next spring I will be riding my motorcycle down the path as it looks like a road because of the speed limit sign.

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.
