OR you could spend $1.1 million to improve transit and get more cars off the streets. But that would require having a brain, which unfortunately isn’t allowed on community council.
TORONTO – The speed limit on some Toronto streets could soon drop from 40km/hr to 30km/hr.
Members of the Toronto and East York Community Council unanimously voted to reduce the speed limit on 387 km of local roads Monday evening.
The changes will cost an estimated $1.1 million, something City Council has to approve.
Councillor Josh Matlow has been championing the idea, after 6-year-old Georgia Walsh was struck and killed by a van in Leaside last summer.
The vote is welcomed by Alan Wayne Scott, who’s been advocating for cycling safety.
