Development of a Traffic Safety Action Plan for the City of Saskatoon

A "Traffic Safety Action Plan" (TSAP) is currently being developed for the City of Saskatoon. A TSAP is defined as a scientific, data-driven, four to five year comprehensive safety document that is designed to identify a jurisdiction's areas of safety concern known as "emphasis areas", establish target collision reduction goal(s), provide network screening results, and general countermeasures and strategies for each chosen emphasis area. This TSAP will help the City of Saskatoon allocate their limited resources to a manageable number of emphasis areas to maximize the benefits for safety investment and generate the greatest safety improvement. The objective of the paper is to describe the development of a municipal-level TSAP for the City of Saskatoon. The study starts with the selection of emphasis areas using the most recent ten years of collision data (2001-2010). The results of the stakeholder workshop and the chosen emphasis areas (i.e., Intersections, Aggressive Driving, Distracted Driving, Vulnerable Road Users, Impaired Driving, Young Drivers and Older Drivers) will then be discussed. Preliminary network screening of the chosen emphasis areas will be presented, and will be followed by the selection of countermeasures/strategies and target goals in the future.
