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.

I have lived near Bathurst and Lake Shore for 23 years. There has always been a 'No Left Turn' sign stopping left turns from Bathurst onto Fleet St. except for TTC vehicles. This has been respected for many years. However, with the growth of condos along Fleet St., this sign is abused on a regular basis. To prove my point, I stood at the corner of Fleet and Bathurst on July 30. I stood there for only an hour, 4.15 to 5.15. During that time, no fewer than 52 vehicles made illegal turns onto Fleet. I have at least three photos of each car making the illegal turn with license plate numbers. I have not seen a police presence here in 10 years. I once discussed a TTC street car driver about the whole intersection problem. His opinion was that the police have given up. I hope to include a few photos, but if I can't, I can produce them at any time.

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!

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.
