Toronto police very public and visible when towing delivery trucks violating ‘zero-tolerance’ parking policy

Screengrab

Toronto Police took to Twitter this morning to show that they would deliver punishment to anyone violating the new “zero-tolerance” traffic policy. Photos showing four delivery trucks being towed were tweeted Tuesday morning by Const. Clint Stibbe.

According to Stibbe, the tweeted trucks from FedEx, Canada Post and Iron Mountain have all been impounded. A photo was posted of a Canadian Linen and Uniform Service truck about to be towed, but the driver showed up just in time to save his vehicle from impoundment.

Stibbe said the photos weren’t posted to shame drivers, but to motivate change from the drivers’ employers. “We’re just showing that we’re serious, that this is the new normal,” said Stibbe on the tweets. “We aren’t showing any individuals, we’re showing the companies. They have the power to make change.”

While none of the companies in the tweeted photos have reached out to Stibbe to react to their public scolding, he says armoured car security service Garda contacted police to clarify the changes.

Canada Post has already made small changes to its operating procedures, adding additional pick-up times in the afternoon to reduce the time to clear the stores at the end of the day. Canada Post will also be conducting a review of its pick-up and delivery procedures.

David Turnbull, president and CEO of the Canadian Courier and Logistics Association, said yesterday at city hall that the city is also adding extra delivery zones for couriers.

Toronto Police Services say if your vehicle is not where you left it, don’t assume it is stolen. Instead, call the non-emergency line at 416-808-2222 and a dispatcher will let you know if you’re vehicle has been impounded and where it is located.

Stibbe said the purpose of the new policy is to help keep traffic moving rather than write tickets and tow vehicles.

Stibbe said delivery trucks will receive no special treatment and the goal is to help keep traffic moving rather than write tickets and tow vehicles.
