The Toronto Police Service has been working closely with our City of Toronto Emergency Management partners in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue to support the various programs implemented by the City to reduce the spread of the virus.

The enforcement of illegally parked vehicles within rush hour routes was reduced for the last several months due to the City’s CafeTO program. This program has recently ceased on streets and no longer affects the roadways.

On Monday, November 23, 2020, the Toronto Police Service will resume enforcement and towing of all rush hour route offences within the City.

See video.

Members of the public are encouraged to park legally in order to avoid parking violations and the towing of vehicles.

The enforcement of expired vehicle licence plate stickers will remain suspended following Service Ontario guidelines.

Further updates will be provided with news releases and will be made available at
