The Toronto Police Service is cracking down on drivers who park in bike lanes.

The Parking Enforcement Unit has announced it will be permanently assigning three officers to oversee the city’s bicycle lane network.

The three officers will work Monday to Friday and will be using social media to assist them in finding and ticketing anyone parking in the bike lanes.

Regular duty parking enforcement officers will also continue to patrol the bicycle lanes for infractions.

Last year, Toronto police wrote 7,285 bike lane tickets. During the first seven months of 2017, police issued almost 5,000 tickets.
