Zero is the number of traffic fatalities envisioned by planners who are trying to remedy Toronto’s worsening transportation problems. Vision Zero is an international movement, so safety ideas come from all over … even Beach Hill.
Yesterday, Danica and I participated in a well-attended, lively roundtable hosted by our local councillor. We used provided maps to communicate our observations. I pointed out places where cyclists on sidewalks are a problem, for example.
Roger Browne, City Traffic Control and Safety Manager, was there to collect our input for the database.
Mystery Bonus: Councillor McMahon will not be running for re-election this year, so who is going to try for the job? One prospect was sitting at our table. He let it slip that he will be announcing his candidacy soon, so I won’t steal his thunder, but Danica and I think he might be good at the job.
