Toronto Police and CAA Launch “Watch for Bikes” Campaign

 

This morning, the Toronto Police Service and the South Central Ontario Chapter of the Canadian Automobile Association launched their annual “Watch for Bikes” sticker campaign (PDF):

Watch for Bikes

So far this year in Toronto, 106 cyclists have been involved in car−bike collisions and 40 charges of “Open Vehicle Door Improperly” have been laid. In 2010, there were approximately 1,290 car−bike collisions in Toronto.As we enter the mid−point of Bike Month, Traffic Services, and its community partner CAA
South Central Ontario, would like to continue to promote safety between vehicles and
bicycles, with the “Watch for Bikes” sticker safety campaign.

This program basically allows drivers to pick up stickers they can put on their rearview mirrors to remind themselves to look for cyclists before swinging open their doors.

In past years, you could pick up stickers at your local bike stores, CAA Offices, Police Stations, and Community, Recreation, or Civic Centres.  Does that hold true this year?  Not sure yet.
