ROAD USER SAFETY PROGRAM - VOTE 2703

This program's objective is to make Ontario's road users safer by developing road user safety programs. It also ensures efficiency in the delivery of its safety products and services.

The key safety responsibilities of this core business are to: set safety standards, policies and regulations for road users, carriers and vehicles; to inspect, monitor and enforce compliance with those standards; to test and licence drivers and vehicles; to educate road users about safe driving behaviours and government road user safety policies/legislation.

An additional responsibility is to manage and improve customer service by setting standards and monitoring performance of private sector partners, promoting government products at self service kiosks, managing transition of service delivery to Integrated Service Delivery for Individuals and the private and not for profit sectors and managing information on every driver, vehicle and commercial carrier in Ontario. The program is also responsible for facilitating the delivery of core programs for other ministries (i.e. Drive Clean , Family Responsibility Office).
