Vision Zero is the long-term goal of zero traffic-related fatalities and serious injuries on our streets. Help Edmonton achieve Vision Zero.

Safe Mobility Strategy

Purpose and Principles

The purpose of the Safe Mobility Strategy is to achieve Vision Zero through safe and livable streets in Edmonton. The strategy will be developed throughout 2020, using public engagement as well as technical data analysis and academic research.

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 purpose and principles of the Safe Mobility Strategy were endorsed by the Community and Public Services Committee on December 4, 2019.

Vision Zero Progress

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. The Safe Mobility Strategy will outline how we continue our success toward reaching Vision Zero.

Project Status

This June, we asked people what it is like to move around on the streets. We were looking for feedback on the safety of your streets: how they feel, function, and how they work for you.

Over 1800 people completed the online survey, and over 650 pins were added to the map at engaged.edmonton.ca/safestreets between June 8 to 23. The map will be available until September 23.

The Safe Mobility Strategy project team is now reviewing the data collected from the map and survey. Your feedback will help us find traffic risks that the data doesn’t show us, create solutions, and prioritize next steps. A What We Heard Report will be shared back with the public later this summer.

The project team is also using 5 years of collision data to identify a high crash network and find trends across high crash locations. A Draft Safe Mobility Strategy will be made available for public input later this year.

These insights and daily experiences will help us shape our strategy to reach Vision Zero and to prioritize traffic safety improvements in the Safe Mobility Strategy.

In the meantime, you and your family can explore your neighbourhood with the Safe Streets Scavenger Hunt. Find as many traffic safety items as you can!
