I was going to bump your 2018 thread but the weather hasn't been warm enough to warrant it, if you know what I mean

If you wave people through an inter-section, I think you can be charged if they get in an accident.

Heard this from someone who was charged in a similar circumstance. I never do it.

It's not so much the temperature, rather it's the location, as evidenced In this snapshot from my commute downtown a week ago Friday

Close-call in the diamond lane

1. Vehicles continuing to turn left after their advance green ends
2, BMW 3 series, single occupant, speeding past slower cars
3. Older driver fails to stop at red before turnng right (view of diamond lane obscured by left turning truck - expectation lane would be empty?)

The diamond lane is awesome for motorcyclists, but you need your spidey sense on level 10 all of the time...

Old vans are coming back into style like they were in the 1970s. Young people can't afford rent so they're buying old vans, customizing and living in them like kids did back in 1975. Next thing you know they'll be having Truck-ins again.

100% my accident last year was a left turner across 2 lanes of stopped traffic into the HOV lane where i was. Heads on swivels peeps!

I ride the HOV lane on HWY 7 through Markham daily -- Grand Theft Auto Live! Cars dart into the lane from a dead stop regularly, so regularly that I won't do more than 40kmh unless I'm following a car or truck.

HWY 7 has a lot of space devoted to dedicated bus lanes - waste of road. Approx 24 buses use each lane daily, compared to 40,000 vehicles a day in the adjacent road lanes.

I see the 4-wheel carnage of this exact scenario at least once a week - Dufferin Southbound, just North of Finch. Northbound cars turning left thru two lanes of stopped traffic and across the open diamond lane into the driveways there.

This is exactly where my accident was, left turners trying to dart across into the plaza. Since then i've seen 2 car accidents in the same location.
