Walk Toronto supports speed reduction on local streets in Toronto-East York

On June 22, 2015, Walk Toronto deputed at a special meeting of the Toronto and East York Community Council (TEYCC) that considered a motion to reduce speed limits on all local streets in the district to 30 km/hr.

The motion passed unanimously. Councillors emphasized that the vast majority of their constituents were in favour of slower speeds on their streets. 14 of the 15 public deputants were also in favour (although some wanted additional measures).

TEYCC has final authority over this issue, so this is now policy. However, funding for changing speed signs still has to be finalized.
