Allenby in the News …”Traffic Safety Concerns Raised on Stretch of Avenue”, North York Mirror

A recent article in the North York Mirror highlighted the issue of high speeds on Avenue Road. Representatives from the school (including some of our grade 5’s) and the APA recently attended a North York council meeting in support of a proposal put forward by Councillor Carmichael Greb to reduce the speed limit on Avenue Road from Lawrence to Eglinton to 40 km/h. While Allenby is situated in a school zone that has a reduced speed limit of 40 km/h, historical data shows that motorists are still traveling between 50 km/h and 65 km/h in our school zone. Councillor Carmichael Greb’s proposal has effectively raised the awareness of speeding motorists on Avenue Road and we are expecting the announcement of a community consultation regarding this safety issue.
