As students head back to school and parents head back to work on Tuesday, one Toronto city councillor is urging pedestrians to give drivers the finger.

Toronto Twitter God Norm Kelly says pedestrians should point in the direction they want to walk in when using crosswalks.

The tweet from Toronto's favourite Drake fan comes on the launch day of Toronto police and Toronto District School Board's joint road safety campaign.

The "Are you FOCUSED on school" campaign is aiming to spotlight on distracted drivers who “jeopardize the public through careless behaviour, according to a police news release.

FOCUSED stands for Frequent Offences the Community and Road Users See Every Day.

Police say they'll target aggressive and distracted drivers, and will pay closer attention to motorists and pedestrians in school zones and at crosswalks.

The campaign continues until Friday.
