Canada’s road safety stakeholders’ vision is to have the “safest roads in the world”. The vision is aspirational in nature and need not necessarily be achieved within the Road Safety Strategy’s timelines.
The report Towards Zero: Ambitious Road Safety Targets and the Safe System Approach, states “Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and International Transport Forum (ITF) countries include a wide range of economies with large differences in their road safety performance. The best-performing countries have fatality rates of around 5-7 killed per 100,000 population.”
To place the vision of having the safest roads in context, the vision would result in Canada achieving a rate of 5 fatalities per 100,000 population. In 2007, there were 2,767 fatalities, which translates to a comparable fatality rate of 8.4 per 100,000 population. For Canada to achieve a target of 5 fatalities or less per 100,000 population would have required a further reduction of 1,120 fatalities in 2007.
This national vision represents Canada’s desire to strive towards being a world leader in road safety. While this vision may not be achieved over the short term, it highlights the desire for the best possible road safety outcomes for all Canadian jurisdictions.
The Road Safety Strategy’s vision is intended to inspire road safety stakeholders from all levels of government and key public and private sector stakeholders to work together towards the common objective of making road travel in Canada safer. The vision can best be achieved through the implementation of initiatives that are consistent with its four strategic objectives.
Nationally, the Strategy serves as an impetus to CCMTA’s standing committees, task forces and working groups to collaborate in the development and implementation of numerous initiatives and focused interventions aimed at improving Canada’s level of road safety.
