The Safe Mobility Strategy 2021-2025 is now available to review at edmonton.ca/safestreets. It outlines what we have learned and where we will be going to make our streets safer and more livable for all Edmontonians.
Safety is our priority. Safe streets keep Edmontonians working, moving and thriving.
What Are We Doing?
The City uses automated traffic enforcement in combination with other traffic safety programs to make our streets safer for everyone. Automated traffic enforcement in Edmonton includes intersection safety devices and mobile speed enforcement.
- Mobile automated traffic enforcement locations are updated weekly and can be viewed using the City's Open Data maps
- Automated traffic enforcement tickets issued by month are available on Open Data
- Mobile speed enforcement vehicles have been designed to be more visible to drivers and are parked so that they can be seen without obstruction
How Are We Doing?
Recent analysis comparing 2019 to 2020 data shows that people are slowing down and are participating in creating safe, livable streets that help us reach our goal of Vision Zero.
- The vast majority of drivers are following speed limits in Edmonton. In 2020, 0.44% of observed vehicles through mobile enforcement were issued a ticket, down from 1.30% in 2019.
- The percentage of drivers who received a ticket for driving 21+ km/hr over the speed limit also dropped, from 0.092% in 2019 to 0.027% in 2020.
Since Vision Zero was adopted by the City of Edmonton in 2015, fatalities have decreased by 63%, serious injuries have declined by 40%, and pedestrian serious injuries and fatalities have decreased by 54%. Our data driven approach to addressing high collision locations, unsafe speeds and their contributing causes is working. The positive trend in the reduction of serious injuries and fatalities demonstrates we are on track to reach Vision Zero by 2032.
