There’s nothing like a broken traffic light at a busy intersection to slow down your commute. Especially before the police get there to put up stop signs and take control of the situation, traffic ends up going nowhere as few want to take the initiative that might result in higher insurance costs.
Lucky for Toronto, they have citizens who seem to care.
At around afternoon rush hour, the light at the Dufferin and Steeles busy intersection went out. Traffic was a mess, but quickly, twenty-one year old jumped into action, conducting traffic like a pro-traffic cop until the real police arrived on the scene.
