Cars are constantly being ticketed because of improper sign posting. They are ambiguous and should be be posted in the proper position. It's just not fair and the parking authority couldn't care less.
Wellesley-Magill Park And Sherbourne St. Toronto, ON
I was walking north on Sherbourne, intending to cut across to Yonge at some point, when I encounter this funny little park I had never seen before. I didn't check a map, so I rather assumed that it would serve as a shortcut — it was long and thin and extended west from Sherbourne. However, I wandered about for some time, into what looked like streets, but turned out to be dead-end alleys or parking lots. Only one sign ("no exit to Jarvis") warned me to avoid one potential outlet. Ultimately, I realized that once you go into the park, you have only two choices: south to Wellesley, or back east to Sherbourne. Couldn't someone post a sign or two to redirect the unwary? It's a rather unusual quarter...
1822 Lawrence Avenue West Toronto, ON M6L 1E2, Canada
There is no advanced left turn signal at the intersection of Jane & Lawrence while heading southbound. This contributes to traffic delays and backs up traffic sometimes as far as Keele on the worst days. The only way to ever make this turn is by blowing through the red light which is illegal and unsafe.
8 VotesFix it! Voted!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.
