A few years ago the City identified George Street south of the railway tracks as an area in need of traffic calming. It's a busy spot where people cross the street to get to Tim Hortons and the Beer Store. It's also where the trail along the old railway crosses the river from East City.

People seem surprised that I'm using Twitter to share my research findings. But Twitter isn't the time waster its name implies. Yes, you can follow the comings and goings of celebrities. Yes, many people post inane details from their lives (in quick succession one night a friend posted “Getting ready to go the bar,” “Heading to the bar,” “At the bar”).
What many are realizing, though, is that Twitter is also a useful tool for governments, businesses and researchers to share information. Frequent, short “status updates” or tweets keep users up to date on everything from city council meeting to store sales to... research projects.

Cobourg may be the traffic calming capital of Ontario. Numerous residential streets in the downtown, and notably one arterial road (Ontario St.), have been given traffic calming features in recent years.
