You should visit "inner-city" Sarnia more often. I think you'd find it's a friendly town, with a beautiful Royal Canadian Legion, wonderful waterfront view, the popular Duc d'Orleans tour boat, and a lot of great people.

Bicycles are vehicles. They must obey rules for vehicles. They should no more ride down the sidewalk that I should drive my car down the sidewalk. If this is too difficult to understand, please note the last four letters in the word "sidewalk".
There is only one God, and I don't think he rides a stunt bike.

Compared to a normal, signalled intersection, these traffic circles are inherently hazardous to those on four wheels, two wheels, or shank's pony. It's unfortunate that it will take several flattened cyclists and pedestrians before anyone on County Council will admit that.

Is there anything in the Highway Traffic Act about a "bike box"? If use can not be enforced, this may turn out to simply be a hazard to cyclists and motorists alike. Somewhat like roundabouts. We really should determine who is coming up with all of these brainwave traffic ideas, then send the culprit back whence they came.
I have never been more proud to live in KITCHENER.
Complete is right - completely ruined. The city has managed to take a very well designed arterial roadway, and turn it into someone's garden path. Anyone who believes that is progress probably likes roundabouts.
Great to see Kitchener Council make the correct decision. Now, if we could only do something about the ridiculous proliferation of roundabouts.....
I have commented on this issue in the negative previously, and I do so again. Anyone who thinks closing the main thoroughfare of and between two cities is a good idea, is simply living in their own little dream world. Parks are for playing in. Streets are for cars. At one time, streets were for horses and bicycles, but now we have cars. But streets were NEVER designed for kids to play in.
