Memorial & Traffic Safety Fund
About the Fund
Roadside memorials are sad reminders that our roads can be deadly. These displays of flowers, stuffed animals, and photos mark the spot where someone has died in a collision.
Memorials, while heartfelt, must eventually be taken down because of the safety challenges they pose to pedestrians and motorists.
The City of Edmonton’s Office of Traffic Safety created the fund as a way for grieving family and friends to memorialize their loved ones safely and permanently. It is managed by the Edmonton Community Foundation.
The fund commemorates the victims of traffic collisions and helps protect the safety of Edmontonians on city roads by supporting traffic safety programs.
Donations support the Office of Traffic Safety to:
- Reduce collisions, especially ones that involve injury.
- Reduce speeding.
- Deter risky driver behaviour at intersections, like speeding or running a red light.
- Reduce impaired driving.
- Increase seat belt use.
- Involve Edmontonians in traffic safety initiatives in their community.
- Evaluate traffic data to support effective management and enforcement of local traffic.
