Toronto City Council backed a $52-million boost for road safety over the next five years, beating back an attempt to speed up the plan and in the process calling for a ban on pedestrians using electronic devices while on the road.
The new road-safety plan was approved amid a spate of pedestrian fatalities and barely a week after a senior was killed riding a bicycle. It still needs to survive the city’s budgetary process, and finding about 10 per cent of the money will require going cap-in-hand to Ottawa.
