City launches a new Strategic Road Safety Action Plan

Councillor Gower (Stittsville) has posted about the city’s new Strategic Road Safety Action Plan that is built on a some key themes:

  • Prioritizing human life and health.
  • Safety is a shared responsibility between roadway providers, regulators and users.
  • Human error on the roadway should not lead to death or serious injury, and road traffic systems must be designed accordingly.
  • And most importantly, road safety requires a change in culture. Roadway providers (the city, the province, the federal government, and the private sector), regulators and road users must cooperate and be ready to change to achieve the long-term vision and goals of the SRSAP.
