Transportation Bylaw Changes

Administration presented a report to Committee on proposed transportation-related bylaw amendments that will increase safety and accessibility for a variety of modes of travel for Calgarians. The recommended amendments will update the bylaws to allow for increased access for other modes of transportation (scooters, skateboards and roller blades), update the regulations to international standards for hand signals for cyclists, and increase the safe passing distance. Proposed amendments will enable on-street parking adjacent to painted lines on a roadway, and back-in angle parking where a traffic control device indicates.

This will go forward to Council with the following recommendations: (1) That Council give three readings to the proposed Charter bylaw to amend: (a) the Calgary Traffic Bylaw 26M96; and (b) the Calgary Parking Bylaw 41M2002.
