Some City of Toronto employees may be heading to driver’s ed.
A city councillor has proposed sending 100 workers who regularly drive on the job for a refresher course.
Jaye Robinson says the move would help cut costs to repair the city’s fleet.
Figures from 2010 show the city paid $1.8-million to fix cars damaged in collisions, struck while parked or vandalized.
Ms. Robinson says it would cost about $14,000 to have workers brush up on their driving skills.
She says the money should come out of the existing departmental budget at no additional cost to taxpayers.
Participating employees would be tested after a year to compare them with those who didn’t take the training.
