We believe that a workable and community-oriented city can safely accommodate the needs of a variety of road users including pedestrians, cyclists, drivers, and business owners.
The newly instituted bike lanes on Bloor Street West between Shaw and University/Avenue have resulted in the loss of about 75% of pull-over places. For simple matters such as dropping off a passenger, a driver is faced with 3 unsatisfactory choices: bash a bollard, break the no-stopping law, or block traffic.
These issues compound for those of us who are disabled and can't get anywhere close to where we need to go; and for delivering goods to businesses on streets not built with off-street alternatives.
We petition that the upcoming improvements to the area of Bloor Street impacted by bike lanes include on every block where parking spaces are designated:
* 1 space for passenger pick-up and drop off;
* 1 space reserved for disabled parking;
* 1 space for commercial unloading. This may be subject to time-of-day restrictions.
We further hope that these measures will become policy in other areas of the city with similar issues.
