Dates of existence


The Official Traffic Commission was established by Council resolution in 1930 to investigate, consider and make recommendations to Council on traffic matters, both legislative and administrative, referred to it by Council, any Committee of the Council, the Police Commission, civic officials, any public body or persons, or on its own initiative.

Traffic matters the Commission dealt with included those pertaining to the regulation and control of traffic on the streets of the City, including automatic devices, signs and markings for controlling and regulating all traffic, as well as the best methods of obtaining and for enforcing such regulation and control.

The Official Traffic Commission was disbanded on May 18, 1976. All traffic issues formerly handled by the Commission were subsequently referred for decision directly to the Engineering Department, on the understanding that there be a right of appeal to Council.
