Should Toronto's parking enforcement officers have the power to mail you a ticket, if you leave before they issue one to you? That is being debated at the city's Executive Committee meeting, Wednesday morning.

Currently, all tickets must be placed on a the windshield or in the hand of the driver who made the violation, but Councillor Mike Layton wants to see that changed.

In a letter accompanying the motion, Layton writes that Torontonians, "are needlessly held up in traffic by individuals or delivery vehicles parked illegally in the curb lane or bicycle lane. Often, parking enforcement officers are not able to issue tickets for such offences before the offender drives away unpunished."

Layton wants the Province to get involved and change the law, allowing tickets to be mailed.

The meeting begins at 10 a.m.
