Public Consultation: Countermeasures to help keep Pedestrians and Cyclists Safe

The safety of cyclists and pedestrians when they share the road with heavy vehicles remains an on-going challenge. To specifically address this safety concern, a task force was assembled to examine safety measures, also known as countermeasures, to help protect vulnerable road users (VRUs). This task force is led by a Steering Committee, co-chaired by Alberta Transportation and Transport Canada, with representatives from provincial/territorial authorities.

The Vulnerable Road Users Steering Committee is consulting on the Summary Report regarding the interaction between pedestrian/cyclists and heavy vehicles.

To improve upon the information within the report and capture a broad perspective, the Committee wants to hear from you. To participate, please:

  1. Read the Summary Report and the FAQ to learn more about the scope of this consultation.
  2. Complete the survey to help us improve on the report

The site will be available from March 2nd until April 2nd
