Toronto, Ontario — Twenty-eight years after opening North America’s first Collision Reporting Centre program, located in Toronto, the Accident Support Services International (ASSI) and the Toronto Police Service (TPS) have extended their partnership to open the first-ever pedestrian and cyclist-only collision reporting centre.
On March 14, ASSI and TPS began to pilot the implementation of the reporting centre, complete with a web application for pedestrians and cyclists to begin their reports from home.
The reporting centre is located in the Toronto Police Traffic Services station, located in Liberty Village at 9 Hanna St., Toronto, open Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
“This will provide a positive experience for cyclists and pedestrians, who otherwise would have had to travel outside the downtown core to report,” said Kumar Siva, chief operating officer of the ASSI.
Previously, any pedestrian or cyclist not investigated at the scene of a collision would attend to one of two collision reporting centres–both outside Toronto’s downtown core–to report the incident.
Only pedestrians and cyclists will be serviced at the new location, and it is not equipped to handle vehicles. All vehicles must continue to report to Toronto North (113 Toryork Drive) or Toronto East. Please note that the Collision Reporting Centres are not equipped to handle major injuries (where admittance to the hospital is required).
