Road Map to Safety
Keeping Canadians Safe Through Improved Road Design
Have you ever driven over rumble strips and wondered how many lives they have saved? Or perhaps you have noticed roundabouts being installed near your home and wondered why they are safer than intersections with stop signs or traffic signals.
These are just two examples of road safety-engineering countermeasures that help reduce serious injuries and fatalities.
This brochure illustrates and describes how road infrastructure improves safety. Please take time to read and learn just how much Canada is doing to keep road users safe.
