Wait till you get to Toronto. For some bogonous reason, they decided that
it was perfectly OK to have just ONE street sign, usually a tiny one not
even befitting an alley, on just ONE corner of a MAJOR intersection, and
marking only ONE of the intersecting streets. They figure that if you got
there in the first place, you must know where you're going. After all, why
would anybody need street signs? And they figured that you can read a sign
which is facing away from you on the opposite corner, no problem.
Nevermind the fact that, esp. in the downtown core, there is literally a
labyrinth of one-way streets, no-left-turn intersections, or worse,
no-left-turn-except-on-weekends-9am-to-5pm-and-mondays-after-8pm's, which
is different for almost every single intersection. (Good luck memorizing
all of 'em.)
