These streets aren't even safe for motorists: Main at Dundurn and King at Dundurn are the number one and number two accident intersections in the entire city.

Amen. I've always maintained that I'd rather drive more slowly and feel safer doing so. These urban expressways are ridiculous, and we noted them as such the very first time we drove here to house hunt. What you've got on Main and King is people driving like it's a freeway, making it nearly impossible to change lanes safely. Someone used the expression theatre of the absurd above: I give you cars coming off of the main exit from the 403 trying to get over one lane to the right so that they can avoid the parked cars just past the Main and Dundurn intersection, as everyone else in every other lane whips along 10-20km over the speed limit whenever the light for eastbound traffic is green. Talk about a poor introduction to the city for visitors-- even those who prefer/need to travel by car!
