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.

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.

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.

It appears the road crew responsible for changing the hours on these signs on this portion of the street didn't bother to properly place the AM and PMs, making it impossible to know the actual permissible timing for parking.

1403 Eglinton Avenue West Toronto, ON
Confusing traffic lights at Eglinton Ave. West to Northbound Allen Expwy. They need to put a sign up informing drivers that a bike lane is beginning. How else will the driver or biker know that there are special lights for them coming up. As well they need to put a larger sign indicating that there are seperate lights for bicycles. Currently the sign is between 2 light (don't know why the have 2 sets) and at certain times of the day you can't read the sign. This contravenes the Ministry of Transportations own rules.
