Released in November 2006, the Alberta Traffic Safety Plan (TSP) is in response to the McDermid Report, “Saving Lives on Alberta’s Roads: Report and Recommendations for a Traffic Collision Fatality and Injury Reduction Strategy.” This is a comprehensive strategy designed to reduce traffic-related deaths and injuries in the province.
The Traffic Safety Plan outlines key initiatives to help prevent motor vehicle collisions, build safer roads, enforce traffic laws and better educate Albertans about traffic safety. The TSP also supports Canada's National Road Safety Plan to make Canada’s Roads the Safest in the World.
The Traffic Safety Plan also includes an Action Plan that identifies the activities to be undertaken over the next one to three years. The Action Plan also supports some of the government’s strategic objectives, specifically to improve Albertans’ quality of life and provide safe communities.
