Pedestrian safety

Issue

Boy looking at the speed limit signPedestrian injury is a leading cause of injury-related death to Canadian children. 

Problem

Vehicles moving at a speed of over 30-40 km/h present a greater risk to pedestrians.

Solution: Environment, Enforcement, Education

Small reductions in speeds can significantly reduce injury risk, which creates safer environments for all pedestrians.  Walking is a healthy, safe and 'green' alternative that can be encouraged through responsible urban planning and the active enforcement of maximum traffic speeds.
