Road Safety

Our goals are to keep our streets safe for everyone – pedestrians, cyclists, and drivers – while encouraging sustainable travel options.

We do this through:

  • Enforcement of federal, provincial, and municipal driving regulations
  • Traffic management programs, tools, and incentives
  • Coordination of temporary traffic control during construction / repair works

Traffic Calming

As the City of Vernon continues to grow, residents continue to indicate their concerns regarding increasing neighbourhood traffic.

In particular, residents in some areas of the City have become concerned about the impacts of a growing amount of speeding and short-cutting traffic in their neighbourhoods on the quality of life within the community.

In an effort to discourage undesirable traffic patterns and/or unsafe travel behaviour, many municipalities have responded to similar growing concerns by implementing traffic management strategies, some of which have included the provision of various traffic calming measures.
