Speaking to the media during the announcement of the six-point traffic plan.

Late last week, I joined Mayor John Tory to announce a six-point plan to battle traffic and congestion.

The plan focuses on common sense actions that can deliver results quickly.

For example, we’re going to synchronize an additional 100 traffic lights in 2015 and roll out a pilot project of 20 next generation smart signals that can respond in real time to changes in traffic volumes.

Enforcement is also a central plank of the plan – parking enforcement officers will be redeployed to main streets and, after January 1, the city will instigate a zero tolerance towing policy for vehicles blocking major routes during rush hour.
