As the weather begins to warm and more pedestrians and cyclists use our roads once again, The City of Calgary has declared May Traffic Safety Month. Citizens are reminded through our 2019 traffic safety campaign to pause and reflect on the role they play in keeping our roads safe – we can all help drive change.
“There were nearly 38,000 collisions on our roadways in 2017, 11 with fatalities,” says Tony Churchill, Leader of Traffic Safety. “A lot of these collisions are preventable with small changes; by slowing down and paying attention while driving, cycling and walking.”
The City of Calgary is committed to improving traffic safety through the CARSP webpage for more details.
Citizens are encouraged to inform themselves of some of The City’s traffic safety programs, by visiting Calgary.ca/trafficsafety.
