In 2021, almost half of all fatal traffic accidents happened in Scarborough. Drivers, pedestrians, transit users, and cyclists alike know that lack of political will to make our roads safer has caused immense loss in our communities. For decades, residents of Scarborough have called for changes to speed regulations and increased protections for pedestrians and vulnerable road users.
Doly has worked with Scarborough Southwest community members to help install a stop light to make sure seniors in the area remained safe, supported countless families impacted by lack of proper road safety regulations in our community, and supported local advocacy for safer streets.
We know that safe streets are a shared responsibility, this is why Doly has worked with advocates and families to introduce legislation that calls for unprecedented changes to Highway Traffic Act to make sure negligent drivers face consequences and that vulnerable road users are protected with accountability and justice.
