Is speeding is ever acceptable? What about rolling through a stop sign?
These are just a couple of the questions the City of Fort Saskatchewan is asking residents in an online survey aimed at gathering more information about what’s happening on local roadways. People who complete the survey will also have the chance to share their thoughts on distracted driving, tailgating and other traffic-related issues.
According to the city's website, the survey results will shed light on how road users view themselves, their actions and the actions of others.
The survey is part of the city's Vision Zero traffic safety initiative. Vision Zero started in Sweden in 1997 and has since spread around the world, with Fort Saskatchewan city council deciding to adopt the strategy in January.
The heart of Vision Zero is the idea that even one roadway death or serious injury is too many. Last year there were two traffic deaths in Fort Saskatchewan, the first fatalities in many years according to the city’s protective services director, Brad Ward.
“Zero is an acceptable number. That's the mission statement behind Vision Zero," Ward said.
People can also enter their names to win a roadside assistance kit. The draw date is Thursday (May 31).
The survey is posted on the city’s website.
