The process of the development of the Strategic Road Safety Action Plan (SRSAP) includes three (3) workshops with the road safety partners within the Region of Durham.
Workshop #1 was held on September 11th, 2017.
Did you know?
- The population of the Region of Durham is estimated to be 660,000 and will reach almost one million people by the year 2031 - more than double the
- On average, there are over 1600 fatal and injury related collisions per year in the Durham region.
- More than half of all traffic collisions occur at intersections.
- Traffic collisions cost Regional road users and residents approximately $255 million every year.
Durham Region has recognized that, despite having an active safety program to address motor vehicle collisions, a new and broader-based approach is required and, as a result, has proposed the development of a Strategic Road Safety Action Plan (SRSAP) for the Region. The study will set out targets, policies, and action plans to guide the Region and its road safety partners towards creating safer roads and reducing the number of collisions and thus road fatalities and injuries.
The overall intent of a strategic road safety action plan is to improve safety for all road users through a data driven effort by:
- Identifying and prioritizing the key safety needs addressing engineering, enforcement, education, evaluation, and engagement.
- Taking advantage of all of the resources from the Region and other stakeholders and aligning them to meet the identified safety needs to address the common goal, and;
- Guiding the safety investment decisions in a coordinated fashion to maximize effectiveness of expenditures.
Public information centres were held for the public to discuss their road safety concerns.
