Dear WRConnected Users: WOW! Our fourth "birthday"! We've grown so much over the past four years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover some of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

I don't think I've heard of this one. And I didn't know that cities could make by-laws like that.

I didn't think it was a bylaw, but part of the HTA...unless there is another one which applies to intersections that I don't know about (the section of the HTA applies only to PXOs, not crosswalks--welcome to the insanity that is the Ontario HTA).

I thought maybe it was the one about PXOs.

Only level 2 crossovers, not all crosswalks or intersections. In Alberta, it's stop for pedestrians while on the road, regardless of place of crossing.

I recall crossing mid block in Calgary once and the cars were stopped before even setting foot on the road.

You are all correct! I thought it was a bylaw for all intersections, but it is HTA for level 2 crossovers. Thank you for helping me realize that.

I still don't have much faith that bylaw enforcement is effective but I will need better examples of disillusionment from now on.
