Although the Gardiner Expressway in downtown Toronto is an unequivocally tangled mess at rush hour, the unbridled mayhem really happens underneath the raised expressway.
To access the westbound, single-car on-ramp at Jarvis Street, most drivers dutifully line up for longer than a block. The oh-so-Canadian, respectful method demands a lot of patience – six … seven … eight … changes of a traffic light. But a few drivers won’t tolerate the wait. Instead, they’ll zoom past the lineup and brazenly cut in to the crawling line from both the left and right-turn-only lanes.
