Ward 6, City of Calgary traffic safety and the Calgary Police Service (CPS) will be hosting a community traffic safety meeting on October 22, 2016 from 9 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. at SCA Community Association, 277 Strathcona Boulevard SW.

The City is dedicated to keeping our streets safe for users of all modes of transportation. Traffic Safety is of paramount concern to citizens, consistently appearing as a top concern in citizen satisfaction surveys. This meeting is a place to voice your concerns as well as learn how to keep Calgary’s roads safe for all users. The goal of the meeting is to create a forum to discuss and raise awareness of traffic safety and to take some specific actions based on your concerns.

Specific things that The City, CPS and citizens can do to improve safety will be discussed.  Participants will then be asked to provide feedback about where they believe additional CPS enforcement would be beneficial in their ward. Discussions will also highlight Calgary Police Service reliance on traffic safety requests as a key indicator of where targeted enforcement and education are needed, in order to address traffic concerns.

Based on feedback, CPS will conduct additional enforcement in each identified area and report back their findings. The City’s Transportation Department will then research and recommend specific engineering measures that could be applied where issues exist.

The Calgary Safer Mobility Plan is a five-year plan created to identify transportation safety issues, as well as examine ways to increase safety of the transportation network.
