Toronto police say they are still teaching downtown drivers about "the new normal" during rush hour.

Const. Clint Stibbe was tweeting images Tuesday of vehicles that were illegally parked and then towed.

"Here we tow again," Stibbe tweeted in one post showing a Fed Ex truck attached to a tow truck.

Police say they towed 76 vehicles and tagged 592 vehicles during the morning and evening rush hours on Monday.

It's all part of a new effort to ensure that improperly parked vehicles aren't clogging lanes, which is a part of Mayor John Tory's plan to reduce gridlock.
