Traffic Safety Partnerships
The City of St. Albert is committed to having safe streets. Through a combined effort with St. Albert Engineering Services, RCMP Traffic Services, Municipal Enforcement Services and community partners, we implement the 4 "E's" of Traffic Safety:
- Engineering - designing safe roads and traffic control devices.
- Education - working with our partners to help educate the public.
- Enforcement - routine, regular and targeted specific enforcement of traffic laws.
- Evaluation - working with our partners in evaluated traffic injuries and trends to assist us in engineering, education, and enforcement.
The City engages in traffic safety activities, such as the Speed Awareness Program, Photo Radar, Red Light Camera Program, Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) and regular, routine patrols.

Provincial Traffic Safety
The costs to society resulting from traffic collisions are staggering. In Alberta in 2005, traffic collisions killed 466 people and caused an astounding 24,504 other non-fatal injuries. The sad truth is that these deaths and injuries could have been prevented.
National Traffic Safety
The City of St. Albert supports the values and principles behind the National Road Safety Vision 2010.
A Road Safety Directorate was created in 1969 to ensure the Federal Government plays a significant leadership role in responding to the road safety problem in Canada. Almost 200,000 people have perished on Canadian roads in the last 50 years - a staggering figure that exceeds the total number of Canadians killed in two world wars.
