Imagine a traffic infrastructure that keeps vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians moving without accident, injury or death? That's safety worth aiming for, and the City of Nanaimo is striving to reach that goal.
Road safety for all begins with lower speeds.
In recent years, we have seen an upsurge in speeding concerns among Nanaimo drivers. As a result, we have also heard from more and more residents who are interested in traffic calming as a way to slow drivers down on our roads.
Controlling drivers speed is important, as we know that the slower a person is driving during a collision, the higher the likelihood that a pedestrian or cyclist will survive the crash.
