I have to be honest, I rarely use Sydenham for much but recently was on it 3 times. Couple times on my bike and once driving out to Websters Falls. Wow, I had no idea how many lunatic drivers there are on that roadway. Riding up on my bike I took the right lane, figuring there's such little traffic and no need for 2 lanes that people would happily pass me in the 2nd uphill lane. There was 2 drivers who went into the down bound lanes to pass me and cars beside me. They must have been doing over 100km up Sydenham, in the WRONG lanes.

The next 2 times on Sydenham the following week I saw the same thing both times. All 3 times being on the street cars are driving on the wrong side of the road unbound to pass people who are driving the speed limit. We def need to turn that unnecessary 2nd up-bound lane into a bike lanes. Split the difference and have bike lanes heading up and down on either side of the road. And narrow the car lanes while we're at it.
