During rush hours, it is a steady line of cars in the left turn lane from the end of Beckett to the bottom of Queen (at Aberdeen) weekdays from 7:15 to 9:00 am, and 4pm to 6 pm. I cannot turn into my own driveway if I get home between 4 and 6 pm for fear of being hit by the vehicles coming down the right lane. The rest of the day and night it is just a steady stream of loud, fast-moving traffic up and down the hill. There is no buffer between the sidewalk and the street to protect pedestrians, and cars often hit the curb. When it rains, the cars in the right lane are going so fast the spray of water completely covers the sidewalk (and the person walking on that sidewalk). I suppose "congestion" was the wrong choice of words. It's not congestion, it's just a major highway running through an old neighborhood, with too many cars often going too fast, and it is a daily nightmare for all of us who live on Queen and Aberdeen.
