The general idea here seems worth considering, but the hours strike me as very impractical. Fresh food gets delivered in the morning, and is it reasonable or desirable to expect everyone to be there to receive it before 7 am? The idea that 7-8 am is actually rush hour *downtown* also strikes me as hyperbolic. Major Mac might be filling up, but the streets and the subway are lightly occupied.
I’m entertained by this quote from Glen Stone of the Toronto Board of Trade:
“There already are many traffic restrictions on downtown streets and the police do a pretty thorough enforcement job,” he told the Star.
Where is this fantasy world where traffic laws are actually enforced?
