Nothing you said has anything to do with the topic on hand.

Upper James and Upp. Wentworth are just as high speed as Main or Cannon.

So? This was at an intersection on James South, speed wasn't a factor.

Bodies don't get cut in half at 40km/hr.

Nope, they sure don't. But the dude that was cut in half "was killed by alleged street racers." Engineering for safety isn't going to stop people from street racing.

Shame on those of you willing to not have this discussion before the next decapitation on King or runaway transport on York (it's happened 3 times in recent years, and not one was reported in the news).

Again, this has nothing to do with what we're talking about. This wasn't King, this wasn't York, this wasn't a runaway transport, and since the driver was turning a corner, the speed was probably under 30km/h.

Do we need to change our streets to make them safer? Yes, I agree. Does that have anything to do with a skateboarder going downhill, the wrong way, without a helmet, colliding into a car that was legally turning? NO.
