Many Duranders talk about the issues of traffic in our neighbourhood: Speeding, aggressive driving, near-accidents and accidents at high speed. This year we have a chance to do something substantial about our streets, and the deadline for submissions is fast approaching. Jason Farr has made $1 million available from Area Rating funds to address specific locations in Ward 2 where traffic safety is a concern. Please take a moment (and it literally only takes five minutes) to submit your top idea(s) and suggestions for locations where traffic calming is most needed. This photo shows some locations where Duranders have identified a “hot spot”.
You can view this map and add your own red dots at 294 James Street North and/or submit your location with the online form. Locations with the most submissions will make it onto the ballot for voting at the end of June. We need everyone who has a concern about traffic in the Durand to speak up! Submit your ideas so that our voices can be heard.

Bay Street is sometimes a daunting speedway. Lots of traffic turns from Charlton. Not sure if traffic calming or diversion is possible.
Couple of small problems. What person or department should I complain to?
1. Driving on Duke at Bay, we have to edge out onto Bay because there’s a hedge blocking the view to the south.
2. At Caroline turning right onto Bold there’s a manhole/pothole combination that is impossible to avoid.
