Toronto Police Service
Road safety is everyone’s responsibility, but it begins with you
Wednesday, March 14, 2012 – 5:10 PM
With the return of warmer weather and sun-filled days, the Toronto Police Service would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that they play a very important role in road safety.
With the longer daylight hours and warmer temperatures, there are much more people using the roads in various modes of transportation.
Bicycles powered assisted vehicles such as e-bikes and e-scooters, motorcycles, roller blades, skateboards, scooters, and walking have all seen a boost in use for a variety of reasons, but the bottom line is that we all need to slow down, look around, and share our roads with each other.
People operating vehicles need to be mindful of the “smaller” road-users. They must make sure every movement they make can be done safely. All road-users must be mindful that the rules of the road must be followed, not just because they’re the law. They save lives.
Road safety is everyone’s responsibility, but it starts with you, deciding to do your own part to make our roads safer.
