I bet you forgot that there’s a Tweetup tonight, didn’t you? Aren’t you glad that I’m here to remind you?

(Actually, I’m on my way there. But that’s only a technicality.)

Private automobile use is said to be outpacing Montreal’s population growth by a multiple of at least 3.

Speeding on residential streets has become an increased problem as drivers use them as shortcuts and/or in order to avoid main arteries.

Representing approx. 42 community groups and at least 10,000 Montrealers, the Coalition for the Reduction of Montreal Traffic is trying to make it more difficult for people to bring cars into the city by advocating for a reduction in the number of all-day parking spots.

As is happening in many urban centres, calls are being heard for the creation of an environment that encourages alternate transportation modes like walking and biking. And “an increase in the frequency, reach, comfort and reliability of public transit.”
