NEWS RELEASE

New painted curbs to help motorists park legally in Toronto

The City of Toronto is painting selected street curbs with red paint to show motorists where parking is prohibited. This pilot project is intended to help motorists park legally, enhance traffic flow and improve safety conditions for pedestrians.

“Sometimes on-street parking signage is not clear to motorists, or they choose to ignore these regulations,” said Mayor Rob Ford. “We are confident that this initiative will make it easier for drivers to determine where they can and cannot park.”

Nine sites have been identified for the project, including University Avenue north of Armoury Street, University Avenue south of Armoury Street, Spadina Avenue near Dundas Street West, John Street north of Wellington Street West, two locations on Armoury Street, St. Clair Avenue and Dufferin Street, Town Centre Court near the Scarborough Civic Centre and North York Boulevard east of Beecroft Road.

Motorists parked within the painted curb area will be ticketed.

Some of the curbs selected for the pilot project are near crosswalks, transit stops and fire hydrants. These areas have been targeted in order to improve traffic flow, provide safety and visibility for pedestrians and provide better access to fire hydrants for emergency response.

City of Toronto staff will monitor each of the sites on a regular basis and the program will be evaluated over a six to eight-month period.

Toronto is Canada’s largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. Toronto’s government is dedicated to delivering customer service excellence, creating a transparent and accountable government, reducing the size and cost of government and building a transportation city. For information on non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can dial 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
