According to the report, City staff recommend developing a “streetcar track and cyclist” safety strategy. The goal of the strategy will be to actively collect data on streetcar track incidents, communicate safety tips and to ultimately launch a pilot project that will test various pavement markings to improve visibility for cyclists. Cycle Toronto proposed similar short-term recommendations in its August call to action to the City and we are pleased they are taking action. We encourage members of PWIC to adopt the recommendations.
