We know that road safety is an important public health issue, as motor vehicle collisions are a leading cause of serious injury and death in this province, espcially for Nova Scotian youth. We work to address this important issue through partnership work in a number of areas.
- Participating as community co-chair with the Road Safety Advisory Committee for 2012-2014 and 2014-2016 terms, where evidence-informed policy change is identified and recommended
- Supporting youth road safety engagement provincially
- Addressing the culture of alcohol and its impact on road safety
- Addressing cannabis and other drugs and their impact on road safety
- Facilitating impaired and distracted driving sessions
We know that we can lower injury levels by changing unsafe driver behaviours, designing , building and maintaining safer roads and vehicles. Through the combined efforts of evidence-based policies, engineering and strategic education we will improve the safety on our roads, for all of us.
