"401 Slowdown" Traffic Tip by Grootpiet

Traffic, Toronto: 6 reviews and 3 photos

Driving on the 401, Toronto's main East-West highway through the city, is mildly frustrating at best. Maintenance is a secondary concern, although it always seems like roadworks are underway.

The mysterious thing though, is that the traffic tends to slow down to standstill for no apparent reason. All of a sudden you'll be stopped dead, and when you reach the point that the traffic picks up again, there seems to have been no reason/ accident/ cops/anything for this to have happened.

The 100km/h speed limit is of course a totally seperate topic... for some reason North Americans are not allowed to enjoy driving at all...
