The enforcement of the city's rush-hour routes and other traffic and parking offences continues to be a priority for the Toronto Police Service.
The TPS will be launching a heightened rush-hour route enforcement campaign with a focus on traffic congestion and gridlock within the downtown core. There will be zero tolerance for vehicles found blocking and congesting rush-hour routes.
The campaign will start on Monday, July 31, 2017, with the enforcement of the morning rush-hour routes and will conclude on Friday, August 4, 2017. Parking Enforcement Officers and officers from Traffic Services will be saturating the downtown core to tackle gridlock by ticketing and towing vehicles obstructing rush-hour routes.
Since January 1, 2017, TPS Parking Enforcement has issued 46,370 parking infractions and towed 9,637 vehicles from the city’s rush-hour routes.
Members of the media are welcome to participate in ride-alongs with members from Parking Enforcement. To arrange a ride-along, please call Brian Moniz at 416-808-1612.
The TPS will be utilizing its Twitter account (@TorontoPolice) to highlight results of this campaign.
