ROAD USER SAFETY PROGRAM - VOTE 2703

This program contributes to the improvement of road safety and mobility through the promotion and regulation of safe driving behaviour. The key objective is to reduce road crashes in Ontario by developing, promoting and participating in road user safety programs. It also promotes the effectiveness and cost efficiency in the delivery of its programs.

To this end the key safety responsibilities of this core business are to: set safety standards, develop and evaluate policies, programs and regulations for road users, carriers and vehicles; inspect, monitor and enforce compliance with those standards; licence drivers and vehicles; to work with a broad range of partners to educate road users about safe driving behaviours and road user safety policies, laws and programs.

The program is responsible for managing and improving customer service by setting standards and monitoring performance of private sector partners, promoting government products through Electronic Service Delivery for Individuals and the private and not for profit sectors. The management of information on every driver, vehicle and commercial carrier in Ontario is an inherent responsibility. The program is also responsible for facilitating the delivery of core programs for other ministries (e.g. Drive Clean, Family Responsibility Office).
