PROGRAM - BC Road Safety Strategy 2015 and Beyond
From the document's introduction:
Road safety is a fundamental public safety issue that affects us all. Every day, we all take chances when we use the sidewalks, bicycle lanes and roads.
Every week in British Columbia, almost seven people are killed and over 50 hospitalized with a serious injury from a motor vehicle crash on a public road.
These tragedies are not inevitable. Over the past few years, British Columbia has worked hard to reduce the number of fatalities and serious injuries on its roads.
We cannot take the downward trend for granted, however, and much more remains to be done.
This is why road safety partners in British Columbia have collaborated to produce this British Columbia Road Safety Strategy 2015 and Beyond.
