July 4: Toronto’s Weekly Carnage

About Toronto’s Weekly Carnage:

Toronto’s Weekly Carnage is inspired by NYC’s Streetsblog Weekly Carnage feature. The aim of this series of posts is to bring attention to the death and destruction wrought by automobiles and an auto-centric culture. Pursuing policies promoting walking, cycling and public transit could help reduce the carnage.

It is essentially a Google Map with an extra layer representing the average concentration of […]

FACEPALM: Bloor Bike lane pilot a victim of double standard

In Toronto, you can easily shut down an entire (or a part of)  a street for any reason (construction, festivals, corporate events, marathons, or just because) EXCEPT a bike lane pilot.
