Topic: Development of the Peel Region Road Safety Plan – Lessons Learned
The purpose of a Road Safety Plan (RSP) is to improve safety for road users through a data-driven effort by (1) identifying and prioritizing the key safety needs addressing engineering, enforcement, and education; (2) taking advantage of all resources available and aligning them to meet identified safety needs to address the common goal; and (3) guiding safety investment decisions in a coordinated fashion to maximize the effectiveness of expenditures. Peel Region has several effective road safety programs in place and the total number of severe collisions (fatal and injury) is around 1100 annually. In 2015, Peel Region initiated a study to develop a road safety plan to improve road safety for all road users. The main objective of this presentation is to explain the process used to develop the study plan and the lessons learned during this process. This presentation includes the governance of the plan, consultation and coalition building process with a wide range of stakeholders, consultation with the public, development of vision and goal statements, data analysis summary, and development of countermeasures and action plans. This presentation will be useful for other jurisdictions which are planning to embark on a similar initiative.
