Road Safety

Motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of injury and death and most don't happen by chance. Most crashes are predictable and preventable and happen as a result of key risky driving behaviours:

  • Distracted driving
  • Impaired driving (drugs and/or alcohol)
  • Speeding
  • Aggressive Driving

Every road user (cyclist, driver, pedestrian) has a right and responsibility to share the road, to drive responsibly and to follow the rules of the road.
