New Automated Traffic Enforcement Technology Guideline released
Alberta’s new Automated Traffic Enforcement Technology Guideline has been released, and the City of Edmonton is pleased to see that it firmly establishes automated enforcement as a critical tool for street safety.
“We have begun a comprehensive review of the new Automated Traffic Enforcement Technology Guideline released by the Province of Alberta today,” said Jessica Lamarre, Director of Safe Mobility. “While some adjustments will be required, many of Edmonton’s leading practices, such as highly visible vehicle wraps, thorough data collection, evidence-based site selection and transparent public access to information, have now been incorporated into the Guideline as requirements. This is a testament to the City’s commitment to transparent and accountable safe mobility programs.”
The City will work closely with the Province and the Edmonton Police Service over the coming year to ensure alignment to the new Guideline through a continued shared commitment to street safety.
Safe streets are essential for our city to be healthy and vibrant for all Edmontonians to drive, bike, walk, roll and live. Automated enforcement continues to be an important tool to remind drivers to slow down and drive safely, and a critical component of Edmonton’s Safe Mobility Strategy to reach Vision Zero, the goal to eliminate fatalities and serious injuries on Edmonton streets by 2032.
