Collision Reduction Strategies

In 2015, Enforcement Services collaborated with Engineering Services and the RCMP to develop the Safe City Roads Action Plan which highlighted the need for improved traffic safety and recommended strategies for improvement. 

The following are some of the actions that Enforcement Services is taking to further address collisions, especially injury and fatality collisions in our City:

  • Collision and Enforcement data is been captured and analyzed to identify root causes.
  • Education and public awareness campaigns will be conducted.
  • Enforcement operations  will be used to target high risk driving behaviours that correlate to both Provincial and local concerns;
  • Enforcement Services is a partner with the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance and officers are trained in and carryout commercial vehicle inspections;
  • Operation Traffic Watch program can be used to help people in our community to report traffic/parking violations that they observe.
