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 is used to support research and community programs to improve traffic safety.
Donations support research and community programs that aim to:
- Reduce collisions, especially those that involve injury
- Reduce speeding
- Deter risky driver behaviour at intersections like running red lights
- Reduce impaired driving
- Increase seat belt use
- Involve citizens in traffic-safety initiatives in their community
- Evaluate traffic data to support effective management and enforcement of local traffic
