This is soooo typical of McMaster. One only has to look at their parking "plan" -- which forces cars using the Sterling Street entrance to wind a very long, twisted internal road among thresholds of student pedestrians to get to visitor parking -- to understand the lack of emphasis on pedestrian safety by university decision-makers. Even more ludicrous is the fact that a perfectly good public road exists on Forsythe Ave North that cars could use to gain access to parking (and avoid pedestrian traffic) but university decision-makers have chosen not to utilize this option... no doubt to appease the Westdale residents living off of Mayfair Cresent (some of whom are incidentally members of the university's Board of Govenors!) from having any car traffic in front of their precious homes.
