"Road safety is the number one public and economic concern of our time. As a former law enforcement officer with the Toronto Police Service, tasked with protecting our street’s most vulnerable - I have seen the deadly toll that road violence plays first-hand. I have seen direct collisions, and unfortunately, the carnage that leads to loss of life or limb. I have made it a career to combat road violence by advocating for ways to lessen the tensions with each other while we wait on infrastructure. That is why, I am so excited to have been part of TruceTO - a project aimed at reducing tensions, promoting civility, kindness and patience on our roads. This initiative is an amazing step forward in recognizing personal responsibility in shared public spaces, while we wait for hard physical measures to eliminate conflict by design."
