On June 2, 2015 Ontario passed Bill 31, Transportation Statute Law Amendment Act (Making Ontario's Roads Safer), 2015, which includes a number of legislative amendments to the Highway Traffic Act to improve road safety in Ontario. To supplement the legislative amendments in Bill 31 related to improving cyclist safety, the Ministry of Transportation is soliciting public comment on complementary regulatory amendments.

Highway Traffic Act Regulation 626 (Traffic Control Signal Systems) is being amended in order to enable road authorities to install traffic control signals that are specific to bicyclists.
