The only way to improve gridlock
The only people that cause gridlock
Lack brain function
Traffic moves in more than one direction
Stop using your ego to define
Your lack of geometry skill
If you cannot cross it
Do not block it
If you do not fit
Don't be a twit
Green does not mean go
It means proceed IF and WHEN the way is CLEAR
If its NOT clear it is NOT when you proceed
Politicians don't get this
Only logical people get this
People that never block an intersection
Do not require that education
They have it
The others need it
Go get it
This will solve ALL gridlock
Widening and adding lanes only increases
The idiots who will plug it up
Here's a clue
Side streets are not parking spaces
Off ramps are not parking spaces
Major intersections are not parking spaces
Crosswalks are not parking spaces.
If people would use a brain
They would never block an opposing lane.
Send this to all your politicians promising and end to gridlock
I'm sure they wouldn't understand it
Below is a letter I sent to all Three Provincial leaders, the Mayors of Hamilton, Vaughan, and Mississauga, Councillor Doug Ford, (as direct email to his brother the Mayor is not available (web form only))and other transit related individuals.
Only 2 files, 1 powerpoint, 1 xcel chart. Surely this should be less confusing for you to take the time to ponder.
I have incorporated all (I think) of Metrolinx's plans (though they are very poorly described).
I have added my own future concepts, mostly for Vaughan as that is where I reside.
GT-Trains concept was a recent find, scheduling could be its biggest obstacle, but just like the Go train expansion I suggest, all the tracks are there, it is just platforms/stations required. Since exact budgetary info on train stops is nowhere to be found, I consider all new stops as $20,000,000.
For $50 billion or $34 billion or less if budget numbers make any sense, the severe lack of detailed plans and information by Metrolinx is highly disturbing. Most of my information is from Wikipedia and Transit City graphics.
Yes, money can be found from efficiencies. Stop saying it can't. The LCBO just handed the government $1.7 billion of a $4.9 billion profit. It was also stated that current gas tax money to province came in at $2 billion. CAA wants it to fix roads, but it all deserves to go to transit, and not expected to be pulled from our pockets.
Metrolinx tools: tax,tax,tax,tax,tax,levy,surcharge,tax,userfee,tax, tax.
Ontario government budget $127 billion, far more than past government budgets thanks to HST transfer. If $2 billion a year can not be found out of $127 billion a year, they are flat out lying to our face. Over 40,000 employees make over $100,000 a year, to manage people who manage other people who manage more people. WASTE! Fixable waste.
I ran for municipal office for $0. I got over 5000 votes.
It isn't hard to stop spending, if you have a massive $127 billion budget to work from. Find that $2 billion a year, it can be done. Run a tighter ship.
The above letter was sent on June 19 2013, to date, no response from anyone.
I have applied to work for Metrolinx from an ad posted in the NRU newsletter today.
I think $50 billion or more deserves more information.

This groundhog lives in this patch of highway grass median c/w hydro towers on Don Valley Parkway south of Eglinton Avenue in Toronto
Not sure what he lives on besides grass and flowers, but I see him a lot here.
Traffic is usually slow here, so views are very likely.
Say Hi to Donny.

Religion is one
There are many pro-religion, and seemingly more anti-religion
Government is one
Obviously whoever we elect, or anyone else elects, is always a dissappointment, but get re-elected anyway
On this topic, birth certificate authenticity has been a public opinion matter
Natural disasters seem to invoke opinions about the above two topics
God has brought his wrath upon the heathens, or Government has not provided safety to its people
Let's be serious here
Weather to a great extent is entirely created by the planet itself, perhaps industry alters things a little, sending various chemical compounds in the air for which the atmosphere is likely to react a bit, but I doubt one nuclear plant or coal plant created a pile of tornadoes to wipe out a large portion of a state. God if you believe in one did not say, death to rednecks, tornadoes headed to teach you a lesson. Government did not say, hey we have some high tech weather control methods which can prevent tornadoes but we decided not to use them.
They happened. Period.
Rednecks looking for birth certificates were not the cause either.
Pray if you pray, or hope if you don't, for aid and relief to those who lost families, homes, and friends. Many suffered, you'd want help if it was you.
Donate to Red Cross if you have the ability, or squeeze your wallet if you don't think you can.
Again, I am stating an opinion, surely to be disagreed by someone.
That does not make that someone ignorant, uneducated, or heartless, but in some opinions it could.
There are other topics that create opinions
Tv shows, and humour
Many love specific shows, be it drama, comedy, or reality based, many hate the same shows.
Shows like LOST created real divisions between fans and anti-fans
Humour is very personal
If you write it, it is funny to you, whether others get it or not
Having the opportunity to find others who get you is rewarding
When people of opinions that you are not funny
Would rather spread their hate for you
Than consider it as purely opinion
That's when opinions cross the line
That's when opinions become hate
And not a difference of opinion
We aren't shoving ours down your throat
Why feel the need to shove yours down everyone else's
If you don't like it
Leave it at that
Saying because you don't, means nobody else can
Is a clear indication you have an inferiority complex
You create a need to hate in order to validate your lack of self-esteem
What you need is help
Hate mongering eats you
It may hurt your target more in the beginning
Being a target has not been ideal for me
That hate constitutes bullying
Whether it is face to face or via cyberspace
Bullying is not and never shall be acceptable
Learn to accept other opinions
Learn you cannot enforce yours upon others
Learn that whether you think you are right
Others may find you wrong
I'm sure many find me wrong in this post
That's their opinion
Valid or misinformed
They possess the right to have one
As do I
This is mine
Like it or not
It's an opinion
Not a law
So yours isn't either

Belong to a slect group of people not required
To tell you where they are going or what they are doing
Because a turn signal is SOOOOOOOOO HAAAAAAAARRRDDD to operate
To me, in my logical mind
No signal of a lane means no signal to the brain
And yes most that refuse, or can't be bothered to signal
Refuse to believe there is such a thing as left and right
Only a path their ignorant self is headed
Today in Montreal a vehicle in front of me in the left turn lane
Not signalling with a 2nd left turn lane to our right
Complete with 18 wheeler truck also headed left with a signal
turned left but drifted directly in front of the 18 wheeler
like it didn't exist or wasn't turning
It's a special kind of ignorance required to be this stupid
To be so ignorant to not even see other vehicles using the same road
And think you are entitled to lanes you don't deserve
That I cannot respect
Signals are not an inconvenience
They are the law
The law of Logic
People which confuse right and left do not understand law of Logic
Its too much work to think
