Pedestrian begging for change on Toronto “expressway” – From 416CycleStyle on Instagram

Our quote of the week comes from our friend ‘Xander from 416CycleStyle as he was sitting in traffic on an “expressway” in Toronto:

“When pedestrians begging for change are the fastest moving people on the expressway you are crazy to do this every day.”

    For those interested in a history lesson: Those pics are the Allen Expressway, of course – one of two ridiculous remnants of Toronto’s (fortunately) unfinished expressway system as designed in the 1950′s and early 60s… when Rob Ford should have been mayor, judging by how he thinks. The Allen was to be part of the famous Spadina Expressway plan, and the Gardiner was supposed to stretch all the way through Scarborough to join the 401 near the Toronto/Pickering boundary. (The even shorter Highway 2A is all that’s left of this part) Also, there would have been an east-west Crosstown Expressway somewhere around St. Clair, gradually curving north and west through Etobicoke until it becomes an extension of the 400, and also branching west into another highway – the Richview Expressway which would go to the 403/401 junction. Natch, all of this sounds wonderful for motorists and crappy for everyone else.

    It doesn’t have to be a pedestrian; spending a lot of money on a contraption weighing a hundred times as much as a bike and see that bike on its merry way while you are stuck in a congestion doesn’t just make you look crazy, it makes you look stupid! Maybe that’s why there’s a lot or road-rage about. Too bad most people don’t seem to be able to connect the dots in the picture they have to finish. If they did, they would leave their car at home most of the time.
