TORONTO, Ont. — Toronto Councillor Michael Walker says trucks should be banned from downtown Toronto during rush hour.
The councillor said the ban would prevent trucks from blocking lanes during peak traffic times.
“Fines are a cost of doing business downtown,” he told local media. “This way it will work — because you’re not allowed to do it, we’ll tow.”
He said trucks should be banned from making deliveries between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. on weekdays. The proposal will be discussed by Toronto City Council over the next few days.
