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.

Not that long ago, the Hamilton Express GO buses used to enter the city this way. Every time I was on a bus and we'd approach this merge-point...I'd cringe. And I wasn't the one driving.

When I look at all this, I can't help but think that down the road, when we've finally come to our collective senses, we're going to look at it in the same way we look at TV commercials from the 50s that had physicians endorsing one cigarette brand over another: with incredulous, drop-jawed stares.
