Karen Stintz ticketed for running stop sign on bike

Go Karen Stintz!  I love that the Chair of the TTC chooses to bike to work!  As a long-time Leafs fan, I also have newfound respect for  former Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment chief executive Richard Peddie who said:

“Eh — she gets marks from me for riding her bike.”

What I like about Karen Stintz is she’s that rare politician, who, though conservative, will do research into an issue and make up her own mind about it.  She doesn’t vote according to “party lines”, as the Fords have found out.  She’s also a recent convert to cycling.

Councillor Karen Stintz, the chair of the TTC and a potential mayoral candidate, was given a $110 ticket Thursday morning for allegedly failing to heed a stop sign while riding her bicycle near Yonge St. and Eglinton Ave.

“I received a Toronto Police ticket today for an alleged rolling stop, on a side street while on my bike. Fighting it,” Stintz wrote on Twitter, where she posted a photo of the 9:42 a.m. ticket.

She added: “Sorry it couldn’t be a juicier ‘running afoul of the law’ story, everyone. Alleged story, of course.”
