At a news conference held Monday, Toronto Mayor John Tory and the Chair of the city’s public works and infrastructure committee Councillor Jaye Robinson unveiled a plan that, if approved, would dedicate $68.1 million to road safety initiatives over the next five years.
More information about the plan can be found here. The plan comes after months of extensive consultation with various stakeholders to determine how the City of Toronto should proceed.
Ray Chan, a Government Relations Specialist with CAA South Central Ontario (CAA SCO), participated as part of the committee in recent months that developed some recommendations in this report. He noted that “CAA has an extensive history trying to improve safety in school zones. Through our ongoing advocacy work and the success of our School Safety Patrol program, we continue to look forward to working with partners to further safety in these areas”
