More stories of dangerous speeding on Hamilton's streets. Adding stop lights is a good idea, but converting these streets to two-way would help address much of this problem.
Our one-way streets are built at a much higher capacity than is necessary for 22 hours of the day. The result? Empty lanes just begging dangerous drivers to let it rip.
One of these days, and many deaths later, perhaps Hamilton will finally start to put neighbourhoods first and not the speed of non-residents cutting through our downtown neighbourhoods on their way to work.
Efficient LRT is also part of the solution as it would remove more cars from the road and allow us to remove more car lanes.
I've never seen a street race on Locke, Ottawa St or Westdale Village.
It's time for us to breath life back into our central city neighbourhoods that have been a dumping ground for too long.
Residents here deserve the same quality of life as anyone else in town. Two way streets and LRT have worked time and time again in North America and around the world. It's time to kill this bad 1950's planning project once and for all.
