  1. Hi Les:
    Perhaps the TTC will review the space within the tunnel and put in mirrors or a lighting system to warn or alert the driver behind, when it is safe to move forward in the future.

  2. I KNEW this would happen at Spadina sooner or later. I’ve seen a few close calls in the underground tunnel myself !
