I just moved to Hamilton from Toronto. I'm really satisfy with traffic in Hamilton. it's really easier to moving around the city. The bus system here is way better than Toronto. Everywhere you go in Toronto, it takes 30 minutes for 5 kilometers or 45 minutes to an hour for 10 kilometer. People who are complaining, you just don't know what you have. We need a neighborhood street where is quite, slow traffic (30km/h to 40km/h), and the main streets in city where the traffic can move faster up to 70 km/h. And this article is pointless or it points wrong place, wrong issue in Hamilton. People can speed up to 100km/h in the street which designed 40km/h (this is driving behavior). I used to live in quite, slow traffic neighborhood in Toronto, the speed limit is 40km/h but some guys with sport car still speed up to 100km/h then have to stop at the stop sign in a minute. If you want to raise family in quite neighborhood, just avoid to live near main streets. I would love to see more bike lines in any cities of Canada (not only Hamilton). It would be nice when we have more options. Building the new system bike lanes in city (where don't have many bike lanes) isn't cheap (special in Canada, it cost 5 to 10 times more it should be if it is taxpayer money)
However I would support slower traffic in many neighborhood streets by putting more stop sign. It is one of good way to keep pedestrian safer and walking crossing the street more easy.
