Councillor Stephen Holyday wants to see bicycles licensed in the city of Toronto.
He’s submitted a motion asking for Transportation Services to study whether this would generate enough revenue to support cycling infrastructure.
Council will be asked to consider the motion at its meeting on July 12th.
The Etobicoke councillor tells the Toronto Star his proposal has nothing to do with enforcement.
He says it could be an “effective way to raise money for cycling infrastructure, gather ridership data and increase safety awareness.”
The city has studied bicycle licensing three different times in 1984, 1992, and 1996 and each time decided against it.
