ON the westbound bike/ped lanes on King over the 403 my daughter (who walks across there daily for school) had a good suggestion. Currently the snow is ploughed from the right side, and a snow bank remains on the left side, beside the concrete divider that separates the lanes of traffic from the cycle/ped lane. This means that the snow melts from the snow bank, towards the drains on the right side, creating black ice. If the snow bank was on the right side (north) then this wouldn't happen. It is treacherous when the snow melt freezes into black ice there. A small change in practice would make it much safer.
