Also, one thing I've noticed a large increase in, is the number of collisions at John and Charlton. In the past 2 months, we've seen 3 collisions, all involving cars going north on John turning west onto Charlton colliding with vehicles going south on John. We've heard, then seen, the collisions. The one thing I don't know about is the colour of the light when the collisions have happened. But, I am told by retired residents of our building, this happens on a regular basis (when asking for more details, such as is this happening weekly or so, they were a big vague). So, when asking if this happened when John was 1-way, I am told they can't recall any collisions, other than maybe someone rear-ending someone else stopping at a light.

In this not-too-scientific study, I don't feel safer on the streets. But, then again, these collisions could be due to driver inattention, vehicle failure, speeding, medical emergencies, I don't know.
