Neighbourhood traffic safety is focused on residential areas, including low-speed roads and school and playground zones. Many resident concerns about traffic safety in our community are concentrated in these areas, and are related to speeds, short-cutting and pick-up and drop-off operations at school.
The Neighbourhood Traffic Safety Action Plan
The Neighbourhood Traffic Safety Action Plan (NTSAP) was developed to define key actions that can be taken to improve the safety and livability of Strathcona County’s residential areas while at the same time making the best use of municipal resources.

The Strathcona County School Traffic Safety Partnership
The increase of traffic at schools during peaks hours has resulted in traffic congestion and parking issues. Add pedestrians, cyclists, skateboarders and buses and you have a very challenging traffic safety environment. The Strathcona County School Traffic Safety Partnership (STSP) has been formed to address these school-related traffic safety issues.
The best way to address specific traffic safety concerns is for parents to contact their school administrators and work together to address the problem. The STSP will act as a resource for schools when concerns can’t be easily addressed at the school level.
