Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Consultation has concluded

The safety of cyclists and pedestrians when they share the road with heavy vehicles remains an on-going challenge. To specifically address this safety concern, a task force was assembled to examine safety measures, also known as countermeasures, to help protect vulnerable road users (VRUs). This task force is led by a Steering Committee, co-chaired by Alberta Transportation and Transport Canada, with representatives from provincial/territorial authorities.

The Vulnerable Road Users Steering Committee is consulting on the Summary Report regarding the interaction between pedestrian/cyclists and heavy vehicles.
