Front & Spadina Toronto, ON
The intersection at Front and Spadina is a constant traffic jam with street car tracks being ripped up every couple of years and now, there's construction of a new condo building on the north west corner. However, I've always been annoyed by the no right turn on a red when driving east on Front wanting to turn south onto Spadina for access to the Gardiner. The light for eastbound traffic is only green for 17 seconds which is never enough, especially when pedestrians disobey the "cross on the other side of the street" sign.
When there is an advanced green arrow for northbound Spadina traffic to turn west onto Front, why can't we have a green arrow to allow more cars to turn right onto Spadina southbound at the same time? I try to avoid this intersection whenever possible, but the access to the Gardiner west of the Ex is always also a total mess. Please help!

The Southbound TTC shelter at Broadview and Withrow avenues is located on the ridge of Riverdale hill. The walls of the shelter are designed with large gaps under them, roughly 6 inches. In the winter the biting cold wind sweeps up the hill almost constantly and it comes right up under the glass, freezing everyone inside. Obviously this shelters are not designed for winter, but in this location its faults are amplified.
Keeler Blvd. Toronto, ON
traffic volume and speed are a major concern at all times but especially during rush hours! There needs to be stop signs or speed bumps to slow down the traffic that is often racing by to catch the green light at Neilson Rd. Would a traffic count on Keeler Blvd. be possible? ASAP it is definitely a safety issue!
Church And Hayden Toronto, Ontario
Church and Hayden - southwest corner. Street post has been bent (suspect one of the many construction trucks turning from Hayden onto Church hit the post).
150 The Queensway Toronto, Ontario
Traffic is backing up in the intersection Stephen Dr / The Queensway because the traffic lights directly east at the Mall entrance/Humber treatment plant entrance is not timed properly.
It was good for a long period of time because the lights by the mall entrance would turn green for all Queensway traffic about 5-10 seconds ahead of the lights turning green for southbound Stephen drive traffic, letting all the cars trapped between Stephen and the Mall entrance a chance to empty so that Southbound Stephen drive traffic could have space to occupy.
As it stands now, the light system is back to broken, with a red light at the mall entrance and cars backing up all the way to the Stephen/Queensway intersection, meaning the southbound Stephen traffic has nowhere to go, so they get @#$% and flood the intersection and create a tight bottleneck, preventing Westbound queensway traffic from proceeding on a green light until all eastbound traffic starts moving.
This intersection is back into my top rated annoyance section. Someone in urban planning and design PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE figure out a method around this madness and propose it to the city. This **** has got to stop before someone road rages to the next level.
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
Eglinton Ave East & Credit Union Dr
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!
Bishop Ave Toronto, ON
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.
