BC Road Safety Strategy Launched

British Columbia road safety partners have taken on the challenge of improving road safety outcomes by developing the 2015 British Columbia Road Safety Strategy (BCRSS), in conjunction with the national road safety initiative.

The BCRSS is the result of the efforts of over 30 British Columbia stakeholder groups including: government, the insurance sector, crown entities, enforcement agencies, researchers, the health sector, local government representatives and others.

The purpose of the British Columbia Road Safety Strategy:

  • Work towards zero deaths and serious injuries from road traffic in British Columbia
  • Promote road safety    
  • Increase efficiencies within the road safety community
  • Facilitate the creation of improved information and tools to support road safety

The Education & Awareness Working Committee from within BCRSS is pleased to showcase a BC road safety calendar of education and awareness initiatives.  This calendar was developed by the committee as a guide to the key provincial road safety campaigns, events and activities taking place each year in B.C.  The calendar aims to help increase co-ordination, collaboration and sector-wide support of education and awareness activities as well as help avoid duplication in effort, inconsistency and gaps in education and awareness initiatives.
