Stepping off a streetcar can be perilous in Toronto where the tracks often force passengers to cross a lane of traffic before making it to the safety of the sidewalk.
Toronto City Councillor Mike Layton tweeted out a suggestion that might make commuting safer.

While it wasn’t a formal proposal (meaning there’s no budget or plan in place to implement such suggestion), the tweet has gained a lot of attention. Even TTC spokesman Brad Ross agreed it’s a good idea.

Meanwhile, Toronto Twitter users hopped on board with the idea and even had some suggestions of their own.
@m_layton thank you for proposing this idea. Just a few weeks ago I almost got hit by a BMW SUV on Queen St. W and John St. He didn’t stop
