Road Safety Strategic Plan
Did you know? On Peel's Regional roads...
- More than 75 percent of all traffic collisions happen at intersections
- 5p.m. is the time of day with the highest number of collisions
- Rear end collisions are the most common type
- There were approximately 5,900 reported collisions in 2014
Safety on our roads is paramount. That's why the Region initiated the Transportation Safety Strategic and Operational Plan (TSSOP). Long name, but what that means is we're working with stakeholders and partners to develop a plan to continually improve road safety. We want to see a reduction in collisions that cause injuries and death.
The project includes two major parts:
- Develop a long term safety plan; and,
- Review and develop safety-supporting policies and guidelines.
You too can have your say:
