Didn't realize this was a thread, time to dump all the idiots here. On my way to work this morning, literally cannot wait 1 set of lights and instead blocks 20+ cars at Portage and Main....

          Don't get me started. Pedestrians don't belong at portage and main. They want to use good design principles, then great. Focus them on the exchange, market square, graham mall, waterfront. Not on a huge roadway. You can imagine an old or disabled person saying "i'm allowed to cross" and can't make it half way without the lights changing. Nightmare.

            I really donít understand the need to put pedestrians there at all when they have the underground tunnels that can take you to any of those buildings . Why doesnít you want to go underground in any temp besides summer? Winter would you really rather stand and freeze when itís -40 or go down the tunnels where itís nice and warm. Thereís even a tims down there maybe even grab a coffee while youíre at it. SO much better.

                          Hard to tell in the video, but the driver and rear passenger were putting up their hands like they were doing nothing wrong and it was someone elses fault.

                          Drives me absolutely insane, just look ahead, see if you can clear the intersection if you can go for it. If not sit there and wait until there is space, worst case you end up sitting at the lights for a minute and then go on your way.

                            Exactly. if theres no room, wait till there is. If you miss the light, you miss the light.

                                  I usually go a different route or leave earlier but got caught up at work. Don't see why cops don't just sit there at rush hour and hand out tickets like they do in NYC.

                                      Makes sense. IMO it's bull**** unless you're doing like 100 in a 60 then give someone a ticket, otherwise who cares but that's me.

                                        Kinda defeats the purpose of speed limits then, if you only enforce at a certain speed over. Where do you draw the line? 90km/hr? 80km/hr?

                                          Make the speed limits a lot more reasonable. IMO Chief Peguis Trail, Moray should be 100KMPH, make the highway speed limits 140KMPH.

                                          But they'll never change them cause higher speeds = less money for the toys.

                                            Driver training would have to improve a ton. Plus with distracted driving being such a big problem I doubt it'd ever happen.

                                            Also at those speeds fuel mileage really starts to drop in a lot of cars. I know I lose a significant amount.

                                              Yeah I completely agree, we definitely need way more difficult testing and re-testing throughout the years. It's actually a complete joke how easy it is to pass that test. Personally distracted driving should be treated the same way as driving under the influence, suspend someones license for a month or so and if the repeat increase the length or just take it away. Although Manitoba being Manitoba and wanting more money rarely even takes peoples licenses away if they have multiple DUI convictions on them...

                                              When I went on my road trip I averaged 7.5L/100KM highway @ 130KMPH in my WRX, in city I get around 9.9L/100KM. I just filled up for the first time in winter... 11.9L/100KM this will be a rough winter.
