Springtime in Ottawa and Montreal

Ontario Quebec

A season of snow management has washed away all important road markings. Lanes? Guess. Turning lane? Maybe. Stop line? Perhaps.

If the road can be allowed to function without key informational infrastructure (infostructure!), one might ask why the lines are eventually repainted at all. In some cases, the road markings are essential and it can mean traffic relies on the actions of other vehicles rather than the actual infostructure.

It’s a four-dimensional problem for sure.
