VIDEO - CRD Traffic Safety Report
This video is a report to the Capital Reginal District's Traffic Safety Commission by Helia Sehatpour who is a doctoral student in environmental psychology at the University of Victoria. It provides an overview of her work on the Commission data review project to document factors that contribute to serious injury and fatal collisions in the Capital Regional District and the Malahat Highway.
According to the April 2023 minutes: "The report provides a descriptive analysis of motor vehicle related crashes, injuries and fatalities in the CRD from 2017-2021. The objectives were to identify crash, injury and fatality rates for local municipalities of the CRD and the CRD as a whole; compare traffic safety performance indicators with peer jurisdictions in Canada and internationally; identify crash contributing factors and various crash types; and examine collisions specifically involving vulnerable road users as well as motor vehicle occupants."
