8 VotesFix it! Voted!Front & Spadina Toronto, ONThe 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!
16 Windham Drive Toronto, OntarioAn extra arrow is added to this no stopping sign with permanent marker making this entire street seem like there is no stopping. You can tell when you take a closer look at the photo.

When a pedestrian arrives at this intersection intending to cross (either direction, either corner) and the traffic signal is already green in their intended direction, the walk signal will be the red hand (i.e. don't walk) unless someone has already pressed the walk button.
This creates a confusing situation where turning traffic from Fairlawn onto Yonge (both directions) feels that they are entitled to proceed while pedestrians are held back until the next cycle (provided they press the walk button before then). Some pedestrians begin to cross regardless of the pedestrian signal, and several close calls have already occurred.
Ideally these two should be synchronized, with the cross walk request button shortening the cycle time.

However the southern expansion joint was built too low causing a major dip in the road surface which is a road hazard. Meanwhile nothing is being done to rectify this.
15 VotesFix it! Voted!Renforth & Toledo etobicoko, ONthere is a middle school on toledo & renforth, high traffic area, but noone seems to care (school main office and teachers, parents, drivers, neighbours, city staff and police):
- renforth is a heaven for speeders (the road is imposible to cross at the times)
- there is no other way for children or adults to cross renforth in this area other than jaywalking:
- no crossing guard
- no pedestrian crossing or crosswalk
- no speed limit on renforth
- no 'school nearby' traffic sign
- not even a simle 'stop' sign
1. why an accident must happen for someone to wake up?
2. why nobody cares?
3. who is responbile for this negligence?
1801 Lawrence Avenue East Scarborough, Ontariothe advance left turn signal for the north bound Pharmacy Ave is not working again. Very necessary right now as southbound traffic is down to one lane due to construction on the south side of Lawrence and backs up traffic southbound. Sat thru 4 sets of lights to make a left the other day.

Don Mills Rd At Rochefort Dr Toronto, OntarioTTC stops were removed at this intersection but bus shelters are still there. Some TTC drivers will stop to pick up passengers who wait here and inform them that this is no longer a stop, but there are no signs indicating this.
