In a bid to ease tensions between Toronto motorists and cyclists, a group representing the biking community is printing thousands of “thank you” cards that will be handed out to drivers who are courteous on the road.

The moves comes as former Ontario attorney general Michael Bryant, charged in connection with a fatal confrontation with a cyclist this summer, is scheduled to make his first court appearance today. Called “Cyclists Paving the Way,” the campaign, which starts today, is aimed at dialling down some of the heated rhetoric around the so-called “war on the car” says Yvonne Bambrick, executive director of the Toronto Cyclists Union.

“This campaign is a chance for cyclists to thank the drivers who do ... treat them with respect,” she added.
