Toronto Police Launching Week-Long Bicycle Campaign

Tomorrow (Monday) morning at 8 AM at the intersection of Broadview and Danforth, the Toronto Police Service is launching their latest bicycle safety campaign:

On Monday, March 29, 2010, at 8 a.m., 54 Division and 55 Division officers will start a week−long, zero−tolerance bicycle campaign in the Danforth Avenue/Broadview Avenue area.

Officers will be enforcing laws relevant to the rules of the road, along with any bicycle equipment violations. Enforcement will be targeted at drivers who cross the path of a cyclist or open their car door ahead of a cyclist in an unsafe manner.

This year, the Toronto Police Service has investigated 54 bicycle collisions.

The TPS is requesting cyclists wear light−coloured or reflective outer wear to assist in being seen.

Motorists, prior to turning at intersections, should remember to check their rear− and side−view mirrors and blind spots to confirm this area is free of any cyclist or pedestrian flow.

The media is invited to meet Sergeant Jack West at the intersection of Danforth Avenue and Broadview Avenue at 8 a.m. on Monday, March 29, 2010.

For further information, contact Sergeant Jack West at 289−259−6800.
