A bike ride through all of King Street starting on the east end where it begins and heading through the financial and entertainment districts in downtown Toronto and then finishing up on the west end in the city's Parkdale neighbourhood. King Street is unique in that it it gives priority to transit vehicles and cyclists through downtown, regular motorists are not allowed to continue straight through intersections between Jarvis and Bathurst Streets and must turn left or right. This works well as it keeps King from being overly congested during rush hour allowing the streetcars to keep moving and there's plenty of streets that run parallel to King drivers can take instead. Although you will notice some drivers are incapable of reading basic signs who still go through the intersections anyway. The entire ride is just over 8 km and took place on a Saturday afternoon in August.

1:06 - West on King Street East
5:13 - Jarvis Street (motorists must now turn at every intersection until Bathurst St)
7:48 - Yonge Street (King Street East becomes King Street West)
10:33 - Driver pointing out to another motorist he can't go straight
15:52 - Bathurst Street (the last intersection drivers can't go straight through)
16:03 - Drivers disobeying the signs

Recorded in 4K at 60FPS using a GoPro Hero 7 Black.
