Learn more about Vision Zero Eliminating injuries and fatalities on our roads
The City of Regina is developing a new Vision Zero Road Safety Framework to improve safety for all road users in Regina, including pedestrians, cyclists and drivers. Vision Zero is a concept out of Sweden that has been adopted in several municipalities across Canada and worldwide. It uses a “safe system” approach to improve traffic safety in the community with a goal of eliminating all collisions resulting in serious injury or fatality.
A safe system approach provides an integrated, comprehensive process to improve the safety of our transportation systems. This can be achieved through employing safe land-use planning, safe road design, safe speeds, safe users and post-crash care.
Residents are encouraged to learn about components of the Framework and have their questions answered at Regina.ca/visionzero. Residents are also invited to visit one of four pop-up information booths to speak with the project team in person:
- Thursday, November 16 – Sportplex - 6 to 8 p.m.
- Saturday, November 18 – Sandra Schmirler Leisure Centre - 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
- Monday, November 20 – Regina Public Library (Central) - 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, November 22 – Northwest Leisure Centre - 6 to 8 p.m.
Following these outreach opportunities, input gathered will be reviewed together with collision data analysis, technical expertise and stakeholder feedback as the Framework is finalized.
The data-driven Framework, which includes an action plan with key focus areas, will serve as a roadmap for road-safety initiatives, programs and collaboration points with our community partners and stakeholders over the next five years. The proposed Framework will be brought forward to City Council in spring of 2024.
