Slowing down drivers is a top priority locally.
In Strathcona County, traffic calming has been a major focus in the recent past, as safety issues are increasing.
"Generally in Strathcona County we have very safe roads," said Ryan Anders, Strathcona County's manager of planning, engineering and safety. "We always take residents' concerns and look for ways to improve them and try to find solutions."
In residential areas, speed bumps are a common answer in the "engineering tool box", but other options such as curb extensions are available.
"We have playground zones and school zones to address some of that, but sometimes it's not as clear for drivers and they need a physical feature like a speed bump to remind them to slow down," added Anders.
Other common tools used to remind drivers of safe driving practices include speed feedback signs and flashing stop signs.
As for rural parts of the county, the challenge increases as speeds are upped and road conditions drop.
"Gravel roads are more about traffic management. Making sure there is advance signing, the sides of roads are clear, and adjusting speeds accordingly."
Anders called traffic calming a "polarizing topic", but at the end of the day Strathcona County's main goal is to improve safety.
In the Fort, traffic calming measures have been taken as the city is constructing their first ever round-a-bout on 94th Street.
