Vision Zero Road Safety Program

Niagara Region's goal is to improve road safety for all users. Improving road safety and reducing speeding and dangerous driving are key priorities.

For many years, our staff have been dealing with concerns raised by residents about speeding on Regional roads. Speeding is a primary crash factor and a leading road safety problem, often contributing to fatal crashes and serving as a factor in most crashes.

A review of our collision data-to-date shows that the total number of collisions are continuously increasing on our roads. Niagara experiences a high collision fatality rate when compared to other jurisdictions in southern Ontario.

The Vision Zero Road Safety Program aims to eliminate all vehicular and pedestrian injury or death on Regional roads. It considers all active modes of transportation, such as driving, walking and cycling. It also aims to reduce collisions by promoting major road safety initiatives throughout the region.

Vision Zero Network

Vision Zero is a multi-national road traffic safety project that aims to achieve a road network with no fatalities or serious injuries involving road traffic.

Road safety initiatives

Niagara Region completed presentations at all 12 local municipalities and received unanimous approval to move forward with elements of Vision Zero - automated speed enforcement and red light cameras. An implementation plan is being developed with the intention to launch the program in 2022.

The following initiatives are either in place or development to reduce the number of collisions and fatalities on Regional roads.
