Any websites that tell you when a road change was made?



I was driving downtown today for the Raps vs Miami game and got off at York/Bay/Yonge. I went straight and proceeded to turn left onto Yonge from the off ramp. I could have SWORN in the past that this was a 2 lane turn. I don't go downtown often, but I know it was before.

Low and behold, cops sitting right there giving everyone $110 fines with 3 points under section 154 of the HTA.

Thinking I'm gonna fight it, but I want to see first off if I was right that the roads were changed.

Any advice/information?

IIRC it was always one lane, but you could easily turn from the other lane. Good luck with fighting it tho.

If you're correct, I might as well bite the bullet and pay it - There's likely no way I can win then. Any other info from anyone else?

Only one lane left hand turn. Spadina from Gardiner is the only thing I can think of 2 lane left turn.

The cops have been hanging out at this intersection for quite some time already.

I had no idea it was 1 lane. I've always been taking the left from the second lane. Woops!

Thanks for that article - it did tell me that the rules changed in March 2009. So I wasn't imagining things...

Fight it anyways!

I actually drove that way twice today... You're not the only one who believes it should be 2 lanes - some guy was going to make the turn off the middle lane and bailed out last second almost side swiping me.

Its such an awkward angle it seems like it should be 2 lanes to get north on |Yonge


There is a cop that usually stands under the bridge in the mornings catching people not coming to a complete stop at the stop sign when getting off the Gardiner (from the direction of the DVP)
