At a time when many drivers are so dependent on global positioning systems for directions that they’ll follow them off a cliff, the idea of finding your way by looking for old-fashioned street signs seems quaint.
The enchantingly-named Stella Magic emailed to say a sign alerting southbound drivers on Yonge St. that they’re coming up on Park Home Ave. could inadvertently give some a bum steer.
“But Park Home is actually one block south, where there are stoplights.
“That misleading sign should be removed. Anyone unfamiliar with the area would be hard pressed to find my address. You can’t have two Park Homes within a block of each other without confusing people.”
Scrolling back to 2007 on Google Street View, we could see the Park Home and Empress signs on the same pole, but there was a parking lot next to it, when the condos (and the lane) were only a gleam in a developer’s eye.
STATUS: Allen Pinkerton, who’s in charge of city street signs, said the sign was put up a block north of Park Home to give drivers notice that they’re coming up on it. But after the towers were built, along with the lane between them, he agreed that the sign could cause confusion. Pinkerton said his staff will look at relocating it closer to Park Home, or possibly take it down, since there are signs on all four corners and traffic signals at the intersection.
