Toronto councillors vote to examine garbage truck speeding after CTV News investigation

Toronto – A Toronto city committee has voted to demand more information about how fast city vehicles are going and whether they’re paying their traffic fines after a CTV News Toronto investigation showed pictures of hundreds of city vehicles speeding, including garage trucks and heavy equipment….

That so many professional drivers would be caught speeding is a sign of a design problem on Toronto’s roads, said Albert Koehl of the Avenue Road Safety Coalition. “If I’m hit by a car, my body doesn’t care if it’s being driven by a city official or a neighbour or someone visiting the city. What people care about is the speed of the vehicle,” he said.
