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!

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.

3785 Lawrence Avenue East Toronto, Ontario
Signage from when the roads were being paved has been left at the intersection. What was once a tall information sign is now a brolen hazard and an eyesore to boot. I would have taken a picture, but it was too cold to get my phone from my coat pocket

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.
16 Sheppard St Toronto, ON
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.

Every morning - as early as 530am - between 6 and 10 dump trucks park along Charles Street East, with no regard for how close they are to stop signs, making it unsafe for cars turning right on to Charles from Church, and especially dangerous for pedestrians. This morning, two different vehicles came within inches of me as I was crossing Church Street on the north side of Charles.
UPDATE: December 7, 2012 - The construction trucks this morning were so close to the NE corner of the intersection, vehicles speeding off Mt Pleasant on to Charles who then turn right on to Church are turning the corner blind, because they have to travel so far around the construction truck hugging the corner that those turning on to Church do not see pedestrians, cyclists or people just trying to safely walk their dogs.
The sidewalk parking has ended for the most part, so there is improvement in that regard.
I understand condo construction is important to the City and those people who build and buy them, but not so important as the safety of existing residents.

Every single weekend, a whole bunch of temporary A-frame signs are erected on the corners of the intersection of St. Clair W. and Avenue Road. These signs advertise various condo developments. The signs:
- do not display a permit number (and therefore probably don't have a permit)
- are located on public property (parks) and often block the sidewalks
- are located nowhere near the business they advertise
- are located in the sight triangles extending 15 metres from the intersection of two major thoroughfares, presenting a hazard to drivers and pedestrians
I believe theses signs are illegal for all of the reasons listed above. Please refer to 311 folder 12 135899 dating from more than a year ago.
