Improvements needed to 30 km/hr policy

Walk Toronto has submitted a deputation to the Public Works and Infrastructure Committee regarding the "Proposed 30 km/h Speed Limit Policy" being discussed today (Thursday April 9, 2015). The proposed policy specifies conditions for reducing speed limits on local roads to 30 km/hr without having to add traffic calming measures.

The gist of the deputation is that the proposed policy is very restricted. We are concerned that it not interfere with efforts to introduce broader, system-wide speed limit reductions on local streets. We also propose various measures to make the policy easier to implement on a broader range of streets.

Walk Toronto's Michael Black was interviewed about this issue in the Globe and Mail, and on CBC radio.
