Councillor wants three-foot gap between cyclists and motorists

A Toronto councillor wants a law pased that would require a one-metre buffer zone between cyclists and drivers.

Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam is seeking an amendment to the provincial Highway Traffic Act so that a one-metre gap is mandatory when passing cyclists.

She says the motion is inspired by the death of Toronto cyclist Jenna Morrison. The Toronto yoga instructor and mother was killed in a collision with a truck on Dundas Street West and Sterling Avenue in 2011. She was pregnant with her second child. The driver was not charged.
