Week 10 Link: Parking Infractions and Traffic Congestion

Some parking infractions in Toronto will cost you more starting today.

Although I understand that this is in an effort to “reduce traffic congestion”, I’m not entirely sure just yet how effective raising the fines will be.

I like to think a larger fine will deter drivers from blocking a sidewalk or double parking. However, I doubt everyone is fully aware of this change. So it might take a while before the city sees real results in decreased congestion.

I hope raising the fine will reduce issues with traffic to make it easier for everyone in the city to get around. After all, roads and sidewalks have a purpose.
