As part of mayoral candidate Olivia Chow's plan to make pedestrians safer, she is calling for Toronto curbs to come with right angles, not curves.
Chow's platform promises that if elected Mayor she would "make curbs safer by using right angles." It's unclear if Chow would change already constructed curbs or propose that new curbs comes with right angles.
“We can start making walking safer right now, and we should. Other cities are acting on good ideas and we can too, so everyone can get to the other side of the street alive,” Chow says in a policy statement on her website.
Chow's goal as mayor would be no pedestrians deaths in the city.
She is also proposing giving neighbourhoods the ability to lower speed limits by 10 km/h, allow for longer crossing times at the most dangerous intersections in the city, and also providing better street lighting in those areas.
