February 3/10 Traffic Meeting

About  100 people attended.

It was agreed that the main issue is speed not access or volume.

The safety committee is regrouping this year.  Email us at seatonvillagetoronto@gmail.com if you want to know more.

MEETING HIGHLIGHTS


Suggested ways of making the street less comfortable to speed on:
– Traffic circles
– Paint it with stripes to make it look narrower
– Possible additional parking spaces on Barton
– Lower speed limit from 40 to 30
– Install yellow school signs and residential areas signs
– More speed traps
– Drive  SLOWLY
– Paint intersections to make them more obvious

Councillor Adam Vaughan committed to the following actions:
– Will not do any left turns signs
– Will request more police enforcement
– Ask a traffic calming expert (not city traffic engineers) for suggestions
– Create a few more parking spots
– Look at critical intersections, especially around school
– Study possible implications of removing traffic light at Christie and replacing it with a pedestrian light
