You rail on and on about how your aim is to make Hamilton's streets safer. By that I assume you mean to reduce the number of vehicle collisions since pedestrians colliding usually does not result in much damage. Yet you ignore the simple fact that we already have incredibly safe streets. Of course you will not want to believe me so please check out the report at

The last paragraph of page 22 sums it up quite nicely, "On the basis of total
collisions per 1,000 population, Hamilton has very close to the lowest rate in Canada (Exhibit 2.2)." Since I have pointed this out before you are already aware of it and simply choose to ignore it so you can continue on with your crusade.

But of course we both know that is not what it is all about. You simply use safety as a smoke screen to help fuel your own pet projects, two way street conversion.

We have an incredibly safe and efficient one way road network and you want to change that for personal reasons, to make the streets over into something that you like and want. Safety be damned. You remind me very much of the Maytag commercials. They kept emphasizing how the Maytag repairman had nothing to do. In reality according to every published comparison of various appliance brands the were among the worst for needing repairs.

If you cared about safety you would want to build on what we have, a safe efficient one way road network but, alas, what you want has nothing to do with safety.

Let the downvoting begin.
