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.
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 data comparing 2018 to 2019 data shows that people are slowing down and are participating in creating safe, livable streets that help us reach our goal of Vision Zero.
- Total collisions at mobile speed enforcement sites and associated areas declined 16%
- Most drivers are travelling at safe speeds in Edmonton. On average, less than 2% of vehicles travelling through mobile speed enforcement areas are receiving tickets
- Excessive speeding violations of 21 km/h over posted speed limits dropped 25% at all mobile speed enforcement locations
- While there was a slight increase in the number of mobile speed enforcement hours, the total number of tickets issued dropped 6% and total fines issued from mobile speed enforcement dropped by just over $1 million
Since Vision Zero was adopted by the City of Edmonton in 2015, fatalities have decreased by 56% and serious injuries have declined by 30%. 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.
