King may narrow downtown, but being wider, synchronized and quite fast on either side puts a massive amount of pressure on it. And since it jumps from 2 lanes back to 3-4 lanes once it hits Catherine St., people tend to start "opening it up" before they even hit John.

Not the world's greatest highway, but not anything anyone would desire for the very middle of a shopping/employment/housing/entertainment district.

Look to Locke, Dundas or Concession. People expect jaywalking, and just don't drive there if they want to cut through town quickly. I keep my eyes peeled and my foot on the break pedal, because I expect people to cross. And it makes for some of the most enjoyable and walkable streetscapes in the city.
