TOW ZONE PILOT ON SECTIONS OF GREATER TORONTO AREA HIGHWAYS

The Ministry of Transportation has launched a restricted towing zones pilot on sections of provincial highways in the Greater Toronto Area. If you need assistance in a restricted towing zone:
 
  • Call 911 if it is an emergency or if you are in a travelled lane and cannot safely move your vehicle to a safe location
  • Call 511 if you are in a safe location and you need a tow (select the option for the Tow Zone Pilot)
  • Only call 511 if you are in a restricted towing zone on a provincial highway (see map below). 
Visit Ontario.ca/towzonepilot for more information.
