But driving problems weren't limited to the city's major roads.
CBC reporter Trevor Dunn found a hill in a residential area in the city's west end where drivers kept heading up, then sliding right back down. Even neigbhours pleading with drivers to not attempt a run at the hill on Humbercrest Boulevard and Langmuir Crescent were ignored.
The result was a 20-car pileup of vehicles at the bottom.
