The City of Edmonton, host City of the 22nd International Council on Alcohol, Drugs and Traffic Safety Conference recently released their 2018 Vision Zero Edmonton Annual Report. While traffic fatalities and severe injuries are on the decline, the City remains dedicated to improving everyone’s safety across all modes of transportation, and, ultimately, reaching Vision Zero.
City Manager Linda Cochrane opens the report by stating, “Our approach to the delivery of safe roadways starts with engineering improvements to design, operations and use. It includes traffic safety education to shape behaviours. It includes the engagement of Edmontonians in their communities to keep the traffic safety conversation alive. And it encourages people to obey the speed limit.”
2018 saw encouraging progress on all fronts. Check out the full report by clicking on the link below.
