Drivers may be in for a slow commute on Tuesday morning and afternoon.
Hundreds of tow truck drivers have planned a rally against Bill 15 and it may disrupt rush hour traffic.
Protesters will meet up at several points throughout the GTA starting at around 7 a.m., and then make their way to Queen’s Park using the Don Valley Parkway and the Gardiner Expressway.
One of the processions is expected to proceed southbound on the Don Valley Parkway, exiting at the Richmond Street East off-ramp, continuing along Richmond Street to University Avenue, then north on University Avenue to Queen’s Park Crescent.
A second procession is expected to proceed eastbound on the Gardiner Expressway, to the York/Bay/Yonge Street off-ramp, proceeding northbound on University Avenue to Queen’s Park Crescent. The expected time of arrival will be approximately 9:30 a.m.

Bill 15 comes into effect in January. It’s aimed at regulating the tow truck industry. It also limits the number of hours tow truck drivers can work each day.
