Representative Sought For Road Safety Committee

UBCM is calling for expressions of interest from local government representatives who wish to sit on the provincial Road Safety Strategy Steering Committee. The Committee is a multi-stakeholder body tasked with overseeing and setting strategic direction on road safety priorities in British Columbia.

The Committee’s oversight extends to five working groups that deal with safe commercial and passenger vehicles; safe roads in communities; research and data; safe road users (including cyclists and pedestrians); and education and awareness. Representatives include those from the RCMP, BC Association of the Chiefs of Police, ICBC, Office of the Provincial Health Officer, and provincial ministries.

The Committee meets four times per year, with some ad hoc teleconference calls, and delivers an annual progress report. Those interested may send an expression of interest to Jared Wright, Director of Advocacy & Government Relations.   

Please note that UBCM’s call for expressions of interest will end January 10. The Committee meets on January 25, 2018.
