Traffic Services

Toronto students are returning to school after the summer break and regular traffic volumes return to our roads.

All road-users need to consider the safety of our most vulnerable users: school children, pedestrians and cyclists. We all need to have the common goal of reaching our destinations safely each day.

Too often, speed, distracted, aggressive and impaired driving lead to collisions and injuries.

Parking violations around school zones cause frustration, congestion and an unsafe environment for students.

All of these actions are preventable and avoidable.

The Toronto Police Service and its many road-safety partners are asking motorists to consider these facts and to make road safety a priority.
