    My street was done last year and I shared the same concerns with council and the traffic advisory committee, who responded with, “there is no law preventing drivers from using any street they want”. I translated this messaging to mean, basically shut up and put up. Stop complaining.
    It’s like open season for bad drivers, and good drivers alike. The residents are the ones who suffer the most, until a critical or fatal accident occurs – which I truly hope does not. I truly empathize with you.

    The lack of a Police presence is just astounding!

    I live on Jane St, so try to picture a steady stream of cars, cars/trucks without mufflers, street racing down our little street and semi trucks trying to navigate the corners! Trucks should have had a completely different detour. We have had one accident at one of the corners and many close calls and lots of horn honking. We, the residents of Jane St are so done. As I am sure Paul and King St residents are as well. And absolutely no police presence to help maybe slow things down. They could have made a fortune in speeding tickets on Jane St. And the detour signs could have been more clear about south and north bound traffic. Looking forward to the end….
