In Toronto, traffic is the rule, and for some of us that means taking the long way around the block to get something done.
So imagine my surprise when I had to drive all the way to the other side of town to get a tire for my Toyota Camry.
It wasn’t until I drove past a tire store on the way home that I realised the answer was no.
“It’s a different way of doing things,” says Toronto’s former Mayor Rob Ford, who ran as a Conservative for four terms in 2011.
“You’re driving through a different city, but the infrastructure is the same.
You just drive down the street and find a shop that sells the same tire.”
But this isn’t the first time Toronto has experienced a crisis of traffic in the city.
In February 2010, Mayor Rob Bell announced a plan to reduce traffic in Toronto to 25 per cent of peak-hour traffic by 2025.
But the plan didn’t include a timeline for the plan to be implemented, and it didn’t take into account the fact that a large part of the city has already been cut back by other projects.
At the time, Toronto was seeing a large increase in traffic during the day, and a number of streets were experiencing significant congestion.
The city’s traffic planners have also had to deal with an increase in car crashes, which are the leading cause of deaths in Toronto.
So when I was driving the other way around Toronto, I thought that maybe I should go find a tire on the street instead of trying to park my car.
Luckily, I was wrong.
Traffic was reduced by 25 per cenotaph, with other roads getting the same treatment, but it was still a major inconvenience.
It’s not just Toronto.
Other cities in Canada have seen the same problem, and the number of traffic deaths in Canada has increased.
Over the last few years, there has been a big increase in the number and severity of car crashes in cities like Calgary, Edmonton, Regina and Vancouver, where traffic has been cut significantly.
And a number are experiencing an increase of car accidents and pedestrian injuries, according to statistics from Statistics Canada.
Toronto is experiencing a lot of traffic problems.
But this doesn’t mean we should be complacent.
We need to do something about it, says Toronto Mayor Rob Wilson.
We have to look at how to solve these problems.
I know some of the solutions are simple.
I’m not going to give you a blueprint.
But there are things that we can do to reduce congestion and reduce deaths, like reducing the number, or reducing the speed of traffic, or building new infrastructure, or upgrading the streets.
You can do this.
I think it’s just a matter of time.
I’ve already talked to some people who have had a similar experience.
For example, in the summer of 2016, a group of young people in Toronto went to a local tire store and bought tires for their new Toyota Prius, which had been in service for four years.
That was a big step, because it showed that people are paying attention to their surroundings.
Then in September, the city announced that all new cars would be equipped with sensors to monitor their surroundings, and in the next few months, the number that are equipped with these sensors will be increasing by two-thirds.
All of this has to happen before the 2025 reduction date, but in the meantime, Toronto can look at ways to reduce our congestion.
But it’s also important to understand that Toronto is not alone.
There are other cities in the world with similar problems, including Beijing, New Delhi and Shanghai.
These cities also have some big problems, but they have been able to solve them by improving the roads, installing bike lanes and investing in infrastructure, says Ford.
If you’re a car owner in Toronto, don’t forget that it’s not always easy to get where you need to go.
The road is not always paved, and drivers often don’t have enough room to slow down.
On the other hand, if you’re an individual driver, you can always pay attention to your surroundings.
Try to park on the side of the road when you’re passing another car.
If traffic is heavy in the morning, you should try to slow the car down.
And when you feel safe, park in a parking lot, even if you can’t park on your own.
