Creating safer intersections

More than 71% of collisions that cause injuries or death happen at intersections.

We're working to keep all road users safer at intersections by:

Reducing aggressive driving

Deaths or injuries caused by aggressive driving happen when drivers follow too close, disobey traffic signals, don't give right of way, or speed. We'll reduce aggressive driving deaths and injuries by:

Reducing distracted driving

Deaths or injuries caused by distracted driving happen when drivers don't pay attention while driving. We'll work with the police to reduce distracted driving deaths and injuries by:

Reducing impaired driving

Impaired driving deaths or injuries are caused by drivers who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

We'll work with the police to reduce impaired driving deaths and injuries by supporting programs such as R.I.D.E., The Last Drink, M.A.D.D. 911 and DriveSafe.

Protecting pedestrians

Pedestrian collisions involve a motor vehicle and people walking along the road.

We'll work to prevent pedestrian deaths and injuries by:

Protecting cyclists

Cyclist collisions involve a motor vehicle and a person riding a bicycle. The Region is working to prevent accidents by adding bicycle signals, promoting road safety education and cycling resources, and providing cycling infrastructure such as bike lanes, cycle tracks and multi-use trails.

This interactive dashboard will show data about collisions that have occurred in Peel since 2016.

Peel Vision Zero Road Safety

Any injury or death on a Peel road is unacceptable.

Vision Zero will create safer roads in Peel for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians.


The Vision Zero goal

Vision Zero originated in Sweden in 1997. Now a phenomenon throughout North America, its key message is, "no loss of life is acceptable."

Vision Zero’s goal is to reduce – and finally end – injuries or deaths caused by motor vehicle collisions.

The goal is based on a shared responsibility for road safety between municipalities, the police, community organizations and all road users – we all have a role to play.
