Yes, they used to spend a nickel now to save a quarter later. Now.....the councils of the 80's and 90's should be ashamed of themselves for not building transit, but hey, no property tax increases!Yes, this was a time when the City thought ahead (and , to be fair, it was a new street). Think of Bloor Viaduct built to accommodate a subway, many years later. Now we are the opposite, building (or not!) long after the need is there - think QQ east streetcar!
I am surprised these are still in use. I can see them being abused by idiots in Toronto.
