Back to school brings mixed emotions. On the morning of a new Council year, I’m thinking about my priorities for the year ahead. Road safety is top of mind.
Our Beaches-East York community showed its passion for making community-led change, passing nearly 20 local road-safety measures at Community Council in addition to the dozens of safety projects part of the regular work program.
Below is a table of what we got done (not including the regular work program). If you want to get involved or support local road safety efforts on your street, please contact my office and learn more about the different initiatives here.
