Our safety goal
Strathcona County’s goal is zero serious injuries or deaths on our road network. In the last five years, 59% of fatal collisions in the County happened at intersections.
To increase the safety of intersections, we:
- Educate drivers
- Enforce against dangerous driver behaviour at intersections by patrolling and using automated red light and speed detection cameras
- Design and build safer roads
