Ever-so-slowly, saner bike rules

Weston may once have been the home of the bicycle, but the bike has long since moved downtown and bought a condo.

Slowly, ever-so-slowly, that is beginning to change. City staff are making the streets a bit friendlier to our two-wheeled friends. In January, they’ll ask Etobicoke York Community Council to remove a daft ban on bikes turning at Little Avenue during rush hours.

At present, no traffic is allowed to turn onto Little from Weston from 7-9 am and 4-6 pm, and the law is strictly enforced (as it should be). This includes bicycles. If the new rules are approved, bikes will be allowed to turn onto Little Avenue.

To be sure, this is a small step, but it’s in the right direction.

      1. Way to go Adam!! That’s how to handle people with different views than yours. Attempt to silence them with name calling and censorship.

        1. Trolls can’t come into my house and pee in the plants. They have lots of homes on the internet, but this isn’t one of them. I’ve worked too hard on it.
