Safe Mobility Strategy
Since Vision Zero began in Edmonton in 2015, traffic-related fatalities in Edmonton have decreased by 56% and serious injuries have declined by 30%.
The 2019 Vision Zero Annual Report shows significant progress toward eliminating fatal and serious injury collisions on Edmonton streets. This shows the power of a focused, data driven approach to address high collision locations and will continue as an integral part of the Safe Mobility Strategy.
The Safe Mobility Strategy will outline how we continue our success toward reaching Vision Zero. The purpose and principles of the Safe Mobility Strategy were endorsed by the Community and Public Services Committee on December 4, 2019.
The purpose of the Safe Mobility Strategy is to achieve Vision Zero through safe and livable streets in Edmonton to continue our success toward reaching Vision Zero by increasing safety and livability in Edmonton's neighbourhoods.
The strategy is guided by the following principles:
- We all move
- We all deserve to move safely
- We are connected
- We are successful when we work together, and
- We are informed by analytics, lived experience and research
The strategy will be developed throughout 2020, using public engagement as well as partnership with community, business and educational organizations.
The public engagement plan is being finalized and is anticipated to launch publicly in late spring 2020.
