Moving Ontarians Safely Act

Bill 40, the Moving Ontarians Safely Act, is a piece of Legislation introduced by MPP Joel Harden and Co-Sponsored by MPP's Jessica Bell, Doly Begum and Bhutila Karpoche that seeks to introduce new road safety measures to protect our most vulnerable road users.

Currently, drivers who kill or seriously injure pedestrians due to careless driving are charged under Ontario’s Highway Traffic Act and typically walk away with small fines.

If the Moving Ontarians Safely Act is passedpenalties will apply to all driving offences under the Highway Traffic Act that result in the death or serious injury of a vulnerable road user. 

The penalties introduced by the bill include:

  • community service;

  • license suspension;

  • driver re-education;

  • requirements for culpable motorists to attend court for sentencing and to hear victim impact statements.

Vulnerable road users like cyclists, pedestrians, road workers and people who use mobility devices like walkers or wheelchairs, would all be protected by this bill.
