The daily commute in and out of Toronto involves approximately 1.2 million vehicles. All road-users share the responsibility of making this daily commute safe.
A safe and orderly commute, in and out of the city, contributes to a better quality of life for all citizens.
High traffic volumes contribute to reduced road safety as well as increased driver frustration, commute times, and congestion. Commuter frustration often results in aggressive driving, traffic signal violations, illegal parking and traffic gridlock.
Police and Parking Enforcement Officers in 14 Division will be paying special attention to infractions that impede the safe and orderly flow of traffic. They will focus on aggressive driving offences, prohibited turns and gridlock offences as well as No Stopping, No Standing and No Parking restrictions.
Road Safety is everyones responsibility. Here are some traffic tips to help promote a safe commute:
1) Plan your route and take your time
2) Pedestrians: be alert of your surroundings be predictable and visible
3) Cyclists: follow all the rules of the road
4) Motorists: look for pedestrians before making a turn
5) Motorists: obey all traffic and parking regulations

Police say that a security officer shot and killed an armed teenager Friday night in southwest Atlanta.
Officers identified the teen as Kenard Arnold, 17, of Atlanta, who died at the scene after being shot in the back, officials said.
The shooting happened shortly after 9:30 p.m. at the De Lane Court Condominiums at 1867 Myrtle Drive, Atlanta police spokeswoman Ms. Kim Jones said.
Investigators said Mr. Arnold was firing a gun in the direction of another man when a security officer from the area drove up at the location.
The security officer fired his weapon, hitting Mr. Arnold once in the back, Ms. Jones said.
The teen ran for a short distance before collapsing and dying at the parking lot, Ms. Jones said.
It was unclear Saturday if the security guard said anything to the teen before firing his gun. It was also unclear why the teen was shooting at the man who police have not yet been able to identify.
Police are still investigating this shooting and has not said if there will be any charges filed.

Police swarmed to an east Erie gas station late Monday morning after a parking-lot fistfight ended in gunfire.
Other officers were summoned to the station a little more than 12 hours later, after police said five armed gunmen overpowered a security guard and helped themselves to cash and tobacco products.
The shooting and the robbery occurred at the Country Fair store at 957 E. 26th St. It sits two doors east of a Kwik Fill station, at 921 E. 26th St., that was robbed six times over four months before parent company United Refining Co., of Warren, shut it down in late November.
The Country Fair robbery happened at about 12:05 a.m. Tuesday, when two men armed with handguns confronted the store’s security guard, who had stepped outside to smoke a cigarette and was talking on a cell phone, Erie Police Chief Steve Franklin said. The men forced the security guard back into the store and onto the ground, Franklin said.
Three other men, two of whom appeared to be carrying guns, then ran into the store and joined the other robbers in rounding up the three store employees, Franklin said. The robbers forced the employees to open the store’s cash registers, and they took an undisclosed sum of cash, along with cigarettes and other tobacco products, he said.
The robbers then fled the store and were last seen heading south on East Avenue, Franklin said.
Detectives are also interviewing other witnesses, and are reviewing surveillance video from the Country Fair, he said.
