The traffic blitz complete with ticketing and towing that was vigorously enforced commencing January 5, 2015 isn’t ending anytime soon according to Toronto Mayor John Tory.
As of Monday, April 26, 2015 Toronto police have issued 26,075 tickets and have towed 5,248 habitual parking ticket offenders since the rush hour parking blitz commenced at the beginning of the new year.
Police say that the rush hour parking blitz is having the desired effect and that people and companies have changed their behaviour, especially during rush hour.
Most of the blitz centers around the downtown core which has 60 km’s of arterial roads.
There are two (2) “rush hour” periods, in 4 hour intervals, in Toronto. Rush hour in Toronto runs Monday to Friday, 6-10 a.m. and 3-7 p.m.
