Parking Enforcement: 416-808-6600
The enforcement of the city’s rush-hour routes and other traffic and parking offences continue to be a priority for the Toronto Police Service. On Tuesday, September 6, 2016, the Service will launch a heightened rush-hour-route enforcement campaign with a focus on traffic congestion and gridlock of the rush-hour routes within the downtown core. There will be zero tolerance for vehicles found blocking and congesting the rush-hour routes.
The campaign will start on Tuesday September 6, 2016, with the enforcement of the morning rush-hour routes and will finish on Friday September 9, 2016. Parking Enforcement Officers and police officers from Traffic Services will be saturating the downtown core to tackle gridlock by ticketing and towing vehicles obstructing the rush-hour routes. This campaign will be focused in the area bounded by Bloor Street to Front Street, and Parliament Street to Dufferin Street.
Members of the media are welcome to participate in ride-alongs with members from the Parking Enforcement Unit. The Toronto Police Service will be utilizing its Twitter account, @TorontoPolice, to highlight results of this campaign.
For media wishing to take part in ride-alongs, please contact Brian Moniz, Parking Enforcement, at 416-808-1612 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
