City Launches the Road and Trail Safety Ambassadors Program|
| || ||
Councillor Jack Layton, co-chair of the Toronto Cycling Committee, will be
introducing this year's Road and Trail Safety Ambassadors at its kick off event
on May 24, 2000 in Nathan Phillips Square.
This year's team of 20 Road and Trail Safety Ambassadors will be raising public
awareness about cycling safety and culture in the city. The Ambassadors raise
sensitivity to the cycling environment by providing road and trail safety
information for all road and trail users - cyclists, pedestrians, motorists,
and in-line skaters.
"We support the efforts of the Road and Trail Safety Ambassadors, and encourage
the public to participate in the events planned throughout the summer," says
The Toronto Cycling Committee is a citizen-based organization that works with
community groups and City Council to build a social, physical and economic
infrastructure that supports and encourages bicycle use in Toronto. For more
