Alberta Traffic Safety Plan
Alberta’s first Traffic Safety Plan, the first strategy of its kind in Canada, was introduced in 2007. The number of collisions, deaths and injuries on Alberta’s roads has declined considerably since the implementation of this plan by the Alberta government and its traffic safety partners. Over the past four years, traffic fatalities have dropped by nearly 32 per cent.
To build upon these traffic safety improvements, a successor plan was created. Alberta’s Traffic Safety Plan 2015 will build upon the partnerships developed in the first plan and will use a safer systems approach, which aims to create safer drivers, safer vehicles and safer roads.
Priorities will be addressed using a number of core strategies including education and training, communication, community initiatives, enforcement, research, legislation, new technologies, road engineering and infrastructure improvements.
