As Chair of Public Works, I’m committed to making our roads safer for all users – motorists, pedestrians, cyclists and transit users.
That’s why, earlier this year, I moved a motion asking for a comprehensive Road Safety Plan for Toronto to reduce traffic-related deaths and injuries on our roads.
Further, at this month’s Public Works and Infrastructure meeting, I requested that an easy-to-use Traffic Calming Options Manual be developed as part of the Road Safety Plan.
The manual will outline all of the different traffic calming options and their impacts, costs and effectiveness. The goal is to make the information about traffic calming alternatives transparent and accessible to everyone – whether you’re a city official, traffic expert or resident.
You can read my motion here.
A draft of the Road Safety Plan will be coming to the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee in 2016.
