Councillor Josh Matlow

Matlow urges common sense while issuing parking tickets



Michelle Rosa

A Toronto city councillor has a plan to change the way parking enforcement officers do their job in this city.


Josh Matlow is recommending a common sense re-focus. He is urging officers forget about driving around residential side streets in the middle of the day and giving out parking tickets or meter violations.


Matlow wants the Police Services Board to get parking officers to focus their efforts where it really counts, on main streets during the rush hours, not quiet side streets where no public interest is served.

The councillor serves Ward 22- St. Paul’s and says he’s heard from frustrated residents who say they rarely see parking enforcement officers on the busy residential streets that present major problems.

That’s not the only parking issue Josh Matlow is tackling. He pushing for safe off-street parking for scooters and mopeds and always wants to find ways of preventing delivery trucks from parking on busy streets during peak hours.
