Someone asked what happens if there are two events at the same time? Copps and W.Harbour? I think we'll survive, here's why...

Last Saturday, I left Gage Park near the end of the Hip performance (supposedly 25000 people) while the Ticat game was letting out (24 000 or so). I walked leisurely about 700 m to my free parking spot and thought about driving down around the stadium to get back to the West End. As a totally non scientific experiment, I was curious to see what would happen if I drove past IWS as it let out. It was brutal by normal Hamilton speeding standards. Going west, I had to drive about 35 km/hr for a few blocks (much less than the unwritten and encouraged 65 km/hr) past the Delta and Ivor Wynne, occasionally stopping so Ticat fans didn't get mowed down trying to cross King St. Once I got downtown, traffic, sped back up to normal. In total, the events added probably 5 - 10 extra minutes to my trip.
