Isn't it time to curb the danger posed by heavy trucks on Toronto's streets? 1.2.2019 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Albert Koehl Michael Black After John Sweeney's death, proposals to deal with the danger of heavy trucks on city roads got significant public attention. Sweeney was one of several road casualties or near misses involving trucks that year but his young age and death in broad daylight made the tragedy particularly shocking. The Toronto Daily Star even published an artist’s conception of a ‘child-catcher’ to be affixed around truck wheels. The trucking industry appeared ready to act. The year was 1952. Almost seven decades have passed since Sweeney’s death – more than enough time, especially given the many advances in technology, to solve the problem of a truck driver's poor view of the road, including blind spots, and the resulting danger from a massive vehicle. Yet, in the first weeks of this year,  three Toronto residents  have been killed by heavy trucks, while in 2018, two cyclists were killed within weeks of each other by trucks. In the period 2007-2017 in Toronto, there were 243 fatalities and ...

Brent Patterson This Saturday September 22 is World Car-Free Day. That's a day when people in cities around the world opt to walk, cycle or take public transit rather than driving a car.

The City of Ottawa does not appear to be officially marking the day, but Critical Mass cyclists will be self-organizing with this local event . Cars, trucks and buses fuelled by gasoline are a major contributor to air pollution. The U.S.-based Union of Concerned Scientists has noted: "Passenger vehicles are a major pollution contributor, producing significant amounts of nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, and other pollution.
