Why The Province's Most Dangerous Stretch Of Road Has Been A 45-Year Long Problem
This article is about Canal Road - up in Holland Landing, near Newmarket. It's a stretch of road designed for farmers of the Holland Marsh, but people are using it as a shortcut to highway 400.
Having grown up in Newmarket and driven Canal Road a few times (I knew someone who lived in the Holland Marsh), I can tell you that the road is safe if you drive it safely. Drivers frequently speed along Canal Road, which is right beside an old canal, with no guardrails, and there are very few streetlights for night-time driving. No wonder people keep driving into the canal while talking on their cellphones.
It's tragic that people are dying here, but I bet a lot of the tragedy could be avoided with some common sense.
