I have been living in the Annex since May and the pedestrian experience is brutal, far worse than Hamilton.

Those leafy residential areas you mention are packed with SUV's which barely slow at stop signs. Even when they do stop, most drivers "encourage' pedestrians to increase their walking speed by entering the intersection soon after you've started crossing.

Curiously enough, I feel safer walking on Bloor St than in the residential areas. The reason? Lights that are timed so there are gaps in traffic.

My two cents.
