S.P.A.C.E. to Cycle campaign, Monday, June 13, 2016 to Sunday, June 19, 2016
Sunday, June 12, 2016 – 7:14 PM
The Toronto Police Service is continuing to focus its efforts on encouraging safe cycling as a practical mode of transportation in our city.
The Service will be launching the S.P.A.C.E. to Cycle campaign, starting on Monday, June 13, 2016. The campaign (Safety, Prevention, Awareness, Courtesy, Education) will conclude on Sunday, June 19, 2016. This one-week campaign is designed to promote awareness and education by reducing the potential for cycling and wheel-sport-related injuries. Building partnerships and mobilizing local communities to respond to local traffic problems will assist in sustaining successful efforts and improve neighbourhood roadway safety.
Education and enforcement of cycling offences are critical to ensuring safe roadways for our communities. All frontline officers will be paying particular attention to those motorists whose actions endanger the lives of cyclists, for example, drivers failing to proceed through turns safely, opening vehicle doors improperly, and driving/parking in designated cycling lanes, all contribute to reduce cycling safety.
Officers will also be paying attention to cyclists who commit offences that endanger all road-users, including the cyclists themselves. Parking Enforcement Officers will assist with this initiative by concentrating on parking offences that may compromise the safety of cyclists.
Traffic Services is dedicated to ensuring the safe and orderly movement of traffic within the City of Toronto.Stay informed with what’s happening at:
