Scramble at Yonge and Dundas


Toronto gets its first scramble intersection today as Yonge and Dundas is now scrambled.  That means vehicle traffic stops with red lights in all four directions, followed by a pedestrian free-for-all, where people cross the intersection in any direction they choose: left, right, diagonally.

It's worked elsewhere and I think it's a good idea for intersections like Yonge and Dundas.  It's worth a shot.  Drivers will have to be a little patient, but this has got to be safer for pedestrians than it is today.
