Great discussion gents. I sympathize with the Fireman. As a driver (predominantly - it would be nice to have more chance to be a pedestrian)I too get frustrated with crazy pedestrian behaviour; however, I think that, on the whole, erratic driver behaviour is worse and, of course more dangerous. On top of that, as has been discussed here, I think that car drivers, like me, have been given far too much right of way in Hamilton. The balance needs to be redressed.

Your road re-design ideas are right on; however I wouldn't discount more education for pedestrian's either. When I was a kid we used to have a cartoon squirrel or something, who taught us how to cross the road. Do kids still have this education now? I don't think it hurts to educate pedestrians AS WELL as re-design the streets. RTH should be promoting both.

Thanks
