Some Torontonians call car-crash injury a public-health problem

Last week, the Toronto Star published an article describing a mind shift locally here in Toronto, across the country and even internationally about how we look at the problem of trauma, injury and death from motor-vehicle accidents. Broadly, many medical providers, infrastructure design experts, urban planners and government officials are switching from seeing injury from traffic accidents as a necessary byproduct of a modern road system to a preventable public-health issue. 

Last week was dangerous for Toronto pedestrians in traffic

At least 22 pedestrians were hit by motor vehicles in the GTA last Tuesday, December 6, according to the Toronto Star. A spokesman for the police department said he did not know the reason for the surge. Police reportedly issued an advisory to drivers, cyclists and pedestrians to take extra care to avoid such crashes in the wet weather. 

Toronto officials release report on outdoor slips and falls

Toronto Public Health has released a report about winter slips and falls in the city as well as recommendations for improving safety, according to CBC News. The article notes that injuries from winter falls on city streets cost the city of Toronto about $6.7 million annually in insurance costs.
