DECLINED: All-Way Stop at Wicks/Horton/Knowles

4:14p.m., Tuesday, January 8, 2019

On a daily basis, I watch traffic speed along Wicks in both directions almost causing collisions sometimes several times, especially in the mornings. With the no left turn onto Wicks from Hwy 2 in the morning rush, people use Knowles then Wicks as a short cut to the 401. This causes a lot of chaos on Wicks and especially at this intersection.

I believe due to the speed and volume of traffic at this intersection it’s only a matter of time before someone is seriously hurt.

The transportation technologist, in Ajax Planning & Development, informed the Watch that their review of our request for the intersection of Wicks Dr at Horton St/Knowles St be made into an All-Way Stop has been completed. Their conclusion is that, regrettably, this intersection does NOT meet the criteria "in the warrant" for an all-way stop. You win some, you lose some! There's still hope for our request for at 3-Way Stop at the Miles intersection and a speed limit reduction along Wicks entirely.
