Torontoist has almost been killed by motorists while disembarking from our city’s noble streetcars many times. This is why the TTC’s new “STOP” stickers give us great pleasure and relief.
Officially rolled out sometime last week, the stickers read: “STOP behind open streetcar doors. IT’S THE LAW!” and are placed on the starboard stern of each mighty red ship.
Torontoist wonders why this kind of thing is not more heavily emphasized in driver’s education, but considering half the city wasn’t even born in Canada and driving schools break rules themselves, we suppose it wouldn’t make much of a difference.
