Petition update

Momentum builds in support of @TPS_ParkingPal and #bikelaneblitz

Jul 5, 2017 — Votes in favor of the work of Toronto Police Services parking enforcement officer Kyle Ashley are rolling in at a steady pace.

In the two days since the petition was started, 75 people have voted in support of PEO Ashley's efforts (as of time of writing at 12:30 pm on Wednesday, July 5, 2017).

Votes also support keeping the current "bike lane blitz" operational indefinitely, rather than bringing the city's ticketing focus to a close at the end of the week.

PEO Ashley also continues his relentless pursuit of scofflaws, building the city coffers by issuing tickets to insolent drivers who persist in parking in the bike lanes.

He has also continued his informative bike lane traffic and safety reports, emphasizing the seriousness with which he takes his role and the situation.

We cyclists have waited a long time for any kind of proper recognition that bicycles are a fundamental form of transportation and that we are entitled to as much respect as any other vehicular traffic on the roads.

Let's continue to support PEO Ashley who works incredibly hard to create dialogue between the cycling community, the city and the police.

Vote now to support a permanent "bike lane blitz" rather than let the situation deteriorate again and see the almighty car dominate our bike lanes with impunity.

Let's give PEO Ashley a big "thumbs up" for his efforts.
