Cochrane Ontario Canada, the town from RAD

Most of the film RAD is set and filmed in Cochrane Ontario Canada.

Wanna go to the place where Ray Walston rides his bike with his coffee?

It's located at 521 1 St W, Cochrane, AB T4C 0A4, Canada:

Here are a few locations from Speed

Early on Keanu goes to a coffee shop and after exiting a bus blows up. 

This is at: 
Main Street and Rose Ave
Santa Monica, CA

They show us the sign that says Main St. and a look at a clown statue:

We see the North Beach Bar & Grill (today it's a CVS):

 And the bright red Cafe that Keanu goes to:

Then we see the bus blow up:

Later in the film Sandra Bullock hits a baby carriage full of cans.
This is near
W Pico Blvd & S Rimpau Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90019

Here is a reverse shot, notice the "printing sign" (you see the bottom of it in the screen cap above):

We also see the cops ride past the Pico Pre School:

The sign appears to have a cartoon of Big Bird on it:
That sign isn't there anymore, but otherwise the school looks very much the same today.
The school is located at 4436 West Pico Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA.
