The enforcement of the city’s rush-hour routes and other traffic and parking offences that contribute to congestion and gridlock continues to be a priority for the Toronto Police Service.
On Monday, October 5, 2015, the Service will be launching a heightened rush-hour route enforcement campaign, with a focus on morning, mid-day and afternoon rush-hour routes in the downtown core.
Officers will start the heightened campaign with enforcement of the morning rush-hour routes. Officers from the Parking Enforcement Unit and police officers from Traffic Services and downtown Divisional units will be concentrating on the downtown core to tackle gridlock by ticketing and towing vehicles obstructing rush-hour routes.
Members of the media are welcome to participate in ride-alongs with members from Parking Enforcement and Traffic Services. The contacts are, respectively, Brian Moniz at 416-808-1641 and Constable Clint Stibbe at 416-602-4547.
The Toronto Police Service has continuously enforced the rush-hour routes within the City of Toronto. In January 2015, the Service provided additional resources and focus to tackle congestion and gridlock in the downtown core.
Since then, for rush-hour routes, the Service has issued 61,830 tickets and towed 12,354 vehicles. The TPS has also targeted habitual offenders, towing 10.942 vehicles with Ontario licence plates and 964 vehicles with out-of-province licence plates.
