Toronto police will pay special attention to drivers, pedestrians and cyclists during the week-long “Step Up and Be Safe” road safety campaign.
The annual safety blitz takes place between Nov. 7 to Sunday, Nov. 13 with officers focusing on seniors this year.
Police say pedestrian fatalities represent approximately 60 per cent of yearly traffic fatalities in Toronto.
Authorities say seniors are among the most vulnerable sector of road users with 23 senior pedestrian fatalities so far in 2016.
Police say the number of pedestrian related traffic injuries normally go up in the month of November.
Officers will keep a close eye on pedestrian crossovers, crosswalks, intersections, school zones and crossing areas frequented by seniors.
