Results are in from the City of Fort Saskatchewan’s 2018 traffic survey.
The city’s protective services department launched the survey in May to gain public input about driver experiences and habits on local roadways.
Over 600 participants completed the survey, a response rate the city said is double that seen for similar surveys conducted in neighbouring communities.
“Feedback from respondents included having a more visible enforcement presence in the city for speeding, stop sign and distracted driving offenses. Additionally, the city also received positive feedback on its balanced approach of education, engagement and enforcement,” the city said in a release.
Protective services will be using the survey results to shape ongoing and future traffic strategies. They will fall in line with the Vision Zero and safe system approaches to traffic safety adopted by council earlier this year.
Vision Zero aims to eliminate fatal and serious injury traffic collisions from Fort Saskatchewan roads.
The city will post a final report of the survey findings on its website.
