Next October, our one way streets will turn 60 https://twitter.com/bikehounds/status/67...

60 years of failure. And yet we still have to fight tooth and nail to get most councillors to listen to the problem(understanding it is another thing, and acting is yet another still).

Next October - let's say happy birthday to Hamilton's one ways and change them back? It happened overnight. We CAN change them back overnight.

Or is city hall so far gone that we can't accomplish now what we "accomplished" over half a decade ago?

These kinds of deaths are extremely sad, and often result from a momentary lapse of judgement on the part of any road user.

But they are totally preventable by using infrastructure design principles well understood around the entire world - everywhere that is except inside the walls of Hamilton's council chamber.

These deaths are less the fault of the 60 milliseconds of bad decision making on the parts of the road users than they are the fault of 60 years of bad decision making on council.

It's time to put the petty ward bickering bullshit aside and fix our streets for HUMAN BEINGS
