Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City of Lethbridge is completing its first Transportation Safety Plan (TSP) to further advance The City’s programs and practices towards minimizing the risk of all motor vehicle injuries and enhancing safety for all travel modes.

The TSP will be an important element within the City’s updated Transportation Master Plan (TMP), planned for later in 2020, as it will guide City policies and strategies for a safe transportation system in Lethbridge.

The TSP will take a four-pronged approach to ensure that the best solutions are identified:

  • Local evidence and collision data
  • Research and best practices
  • Stakeholder and community engagement
  • Alignment with the Vision Statement and Safe System approach

The following Vision, Mission and Guiding Principles have been adopted by the TSP Steering Committee and validated by external stakeholders and community members. These statements will be included within the Transportation Safety Plan and are guiding the development of focus areas and strategies as the project team prepares the document.

Vision: A community on the move towards ZERO transportation-related deaths and serious injuries.

Mission Statement:The City of Lethbridge and its partners recognize that transportation safety is a top priority and commit to working together towards eliminating deaths and serious injuries in our transportation system by 2040*. To this end, we will fully embrace a Safe System approach, featuring programs and policies that are evidence-based, innovative and sustainable. We will aim to foster a positive culture of transportation safety culture in the community, to ensure that we all arrive home safely, regardless of travel mode.

*The selection of the target year may be revisited during the development of the TSP as more information and the potential impact of the identified strategies become clearer.


Guiding Principles:

  • Sustainability: Prioritizing safety, regardless of political and economic cycles
  • Adaptability: Managing the risks and harnessing the opportunities that come with technological advancements and other changes
  • Fostering a Positive Culture: Starting to change social norms by rejecting risky behaviours and effectively engaging the public
  • Equitability: Equity and fairness across all travel modes, abilities and ages; a multidisciplinary evidence-based approach
