Toronto councillors are considering a motion that would more than double rush-hour traffic fines to combat gridlock.
The anti-congestion motion would raise the fine for stopping or parking illegally during rush hour to $150 from $60.
It's part of a plan to tackle gridlock in the downtown core during the morning and afternoon rush hours.
Rush hour is considered to be weekdays from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Council is also considering increasing the fine for blocking a bike lane to $150 from $60.
