Toronto has begun a launch of 53 new Senior Safety Zones across the city – to be installed at locations identified as having a significant senior population.
The Senior Safety Zones are part of Toronto’s $109-million, multi-faceted Vision Zero Road Safety Plan – and they include traffic safety measures designed to raise the visibility of seniors – as well as giving them extended crossing time – to safely get across the street.
The special zones are expected to be completed this fall – and will be retrofitted with new safety signs, enhanced pavement markings – and extended traffic signal walk times.
