According to the Dundas Star News, a new pedestrian controlled traffic light on King Street in Dundas may be to blame for a recent collision between a cyclist and a truck.Hmmm, perhaps reckless driving or a driver viewing a cyclist as a nuisance on the street may be more accurate causes for this crash.
This article says there are too many stoplights along this stretch of King Street. Maybe they should go for the made in Hamilton "Main Street freeway design" so the poor car drivers don't ever have to stop for anyone ... especially lowly pedestrians or cyclists.
One thing is for sure: Hamilton needs more, not fewer, pedestrian-controlled stoplights and safe pedestrian crossings.
We don't need any more Cootes Drive highway ramps, five-lane downtown truck freeways and car-centric development.
Keeping cars calm and slow will ensure the longterm viability of King Street in Dundas one of the more spectacular urban streets in Hamilton.
