Issues: street signal
118 Langley Ave Toronto, ON
Golf Rd & Marcella st, the useless light plus commerical rd & Laird are the worst. I stop on the red with my motorcycle and it doesn't change. some cars turn right than U-turn. I have bounced on the square on the ground, pulled forward no light change or it will count down and go back to walk not changing the light. The platforms need more senitivity for light vehicles. my Jetta won't change those lights making me have to either go through a red or do the u-turn. there are countless lights that do that, can teh city make the lights work better.

The traffic light turning left off Rea rd to highway 51 is too short, it only allows for no more then 2 or 3 cars to turn before it turns red leaving 2 or 3 cars in the middle of the intersection.

If anyone's ever tried to take High Street between, say, Maxwell Park or the Laurel to 880 or Alameda during the day, especially about 2-7pm, knows this horrific backup.
Here's the situation: There are two lanes of traffic in each direction, no left turn lanes, no median barrier, no bike lanes, sidewalks abutting lanes of traffic (ie, no room to widen the street). The traffic light is on the simplest cycle imaginable: green for International, green for High, repeat.
When the light turns green for High Street, traffic in the left lane almost invariably wants to turn left, and has to yield to oncoming traffic, blocking the left lane for most of the cycle of the light. Meanwhile, traffic in the right lane has to yield to the high volume of pedestrian traffic in the neighborhood, which can easily block the right lane. It is not uncommon for traffic to only be able to advance a couple of car lengths per green. To make matters worse, few drivers signal their intentions to turn, at best at the last second when it is too late to get out of their lane!
While I don't expect any progress on Oakland driving etiquette, A left turn lane would alleviate a lot of this traffic. Perhaps signs at Courtland and 880 advising through traffic to take SR 77 (42nd Avenue).
Here's my ideal situation for this intersection: approaching International on High (in either direction), there would be, from right to left, a right turn lane, a through traffic lane, a left turn lane, and the opposing through traffic lane, coupled with signalized left turns, in all four directions (there is already a left turn lane on International, but no separate signal phase). This geometry involves some slight weaving in the intersection, but only about as much as there currently is at High and Foothill. Of course, it means that technically, this would create a bottleneck as two lanes in each direction merge into only one, but one lane that actually moves would be a remarkable improvement over none!
I have to drive this stretch of road multiple times a day, and I just can't believe how long this dysfunctional intersection has remained unchanged. Thank you!

Why is there a traffic light on old 422 in West Pottsgrove to service an abandoned lane and a tattoo parlor with so many other spots needing a light? Why not move it to a place it is needed.
3 VotesFix it! Voted!Intersection Of 28th And Elyria Ave.
Numerous hanging directional signs need updating; especially at the intersection of 28th street and Elyria Ave. Decades ago Lorain Steel Plant (National Tube) was a booming business where traffic, for example, could not make a left or right turn onto Elyria because the traffic would be backed up. So to alleviate the problem at that time and to keep traffic flowing, left turns were illegal. Fast forward to the year 2010 and notice that there is hardly any traffic at all. In fact, some traffic lights were not only suspended, but taken down. One should not have to turn down a side street today in order to reach Elyria Ave. Moreover, there should be a directional green light at that corner to assist driver onto Elyria Ave.

When traveling on Rt 252 to Lancaster Ave and making a left turn, it is so dangerous to make a left turn because it is blind. The cars turning left facing you completely block your view of oncoming traffic.
