PDP #80: On Deaf Ears

Highway 401, the Macdonald-Cartier Freeway, is one of the single busiest highways in North America. Not surprising; it's the spine of southern Ontario, and on it travellers have a straight path from Windsor to Montreal. When it was built, locally it was called the Toronto Bypass, since that's exactly what it did. Now, of course, Toronto's urban sprawl has overtaken and buried it in development.

I took this picture on the afternoon of Saturday, August 1, looking west from the Keele Street bridge. The segment of the 401 that it's part of is actually the busiest highway in North America. I know that sign is doing its best, but - I don't think anyone's paying attention!
