Police said there will be “no tolerance for excuses” as they focus on the ‘Big 4’ driver behaviours known to injure pedestrians — speeding, distracted driving, impaired driving and aggressive driving.
So far this year, more than 50 people have been killed on the city’s streets. Thirty of these victims were pedestrians, while more than 80 per cent of these victims were 55 years old or older.
The campaign will also focus on how pedestrians can keep themselves safe.
Police said that from 2014 to 2018, 40 per cent of all pedestrian collisions happened mid-block, while 27 per cent of the collisions took place when a driver was turning left at a signalized intersection.
