There's been a lot of racing lately. The spec has frequent articles in the last few weeks about cars striking hydro poles on Wellington, Mohawk, Queenston, Centennial. Skateboarders were hit on Garth last year. I have heard of no such occurrences on Concession, or Dundurn, or Locke. Just saying, there's more to the pattern than two accidents 7 years apart.

My opinion is that if the streets are going to remain conducive to speeding, at least the delicate spots like bus shelters should at least have bollards or planters. This sort of protection could be incorporated into the streetscaping. Little barriers like that to at least mitigate out of control cars are sprinkled much more all over Britain and other well developed urban centers.
