Toronto has real safe bike lanes.
In fact, Toronto enforces its “no parking in bike lane laws” with a $150 fine.
Metro Morning on CBC featured a parking enforcement officer talking about how motorists in Toronto aren’t obeying the law and are parking in bike lanes. Of course, parking in bike lanes forces cyclists out into the main traffic lane.
Not only that, Toronto even has barriers that separate the cycling-motoring lanes with plant potters and plastic posts.
Why can’t we have separate safe bike lanes in Oakville?
With Oakville’s Alternative Transportation Master Plan update being introduced to Town Council on June 30 and set for a vote on July 10 there’s still time to send an email to Mayor Rob Burton and the councillors.
Livable Oakville Cycling is organizing an opportunity for you to tell your council member what you think we need here in Oakville when it comes to safe cycling.
