i have really reduced my cycling over the years because of the danger i felt doing so. now i generally just use a sobi to go down the hunter or cannon lanes and dismount before walking elsewhere not on that route. even walking in this city can be perilous. i have to cross queen and king and bay at king daily, and i cannot count the number of close calls either i have had or witnessed. remember that king and bay is about 100 meters away from a primary school and surrounded by high rises. the roadways are meant to funnel people through the area as quickly as possible, and speed limits are rarely followed.

i would sincerely fear having my child walk to school in this city, and the data indicates that many other people feel the same way, which is why so many school areas are overflowing with drivers trying to take their kids and putting those who walk at greater risk.
