Toronto police planning major parking blitz next month

Be careful where you park your car this fall because the Toronto Police Service is planning another enforcement blitz, which is slated to start in September.

After a City Hall press conference this morning, Mayor John Tory told the media that "the blitz is on," according to a CTV New Report.

In January, Mayor Tory helped orchestrate another blitz to help combat gridlock by ticketing or towing cars parked illegally during rush hour. By early February, police had handed out more than 7,500 tickets and had towed more 1,200 vehicles, according to a CBC report.

Drivers will also see prices rise at Green P parking lots in September. CTV News notes that after the Toronto Parking Authority voted to up its monthly and half-hourly rates, 40-50 lots could see price increases.
