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 death and injury on our roads by developing, promoting and participating in road user safety programs. It also promotes the effectiveness and efficiency in the delivery of its programs.

To this end, the key safety responsibilities of the program 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; and 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 service delivery, 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).

NOTE: Commencing in 2003-04, Estimates are presented on the accrual basis of accounting. Information for 2002-03 and earlier years is presented on the modified cash basis, and therefore comparison between 2003-04 and earlier year figures may not be meaningful. Differences between cash and accrual relate to adjustments such as timing of transfer payments and provisions for bad debts, that would increase or decrease the 2002-03 amounts had they been presented on the accrual basis.

Adjustments for this Ministry, if any, are indicated by superscripted references above and are explained on the page following the Ministry Summary - Reconciliation of 2002-03 Estimates from Cash to Accrual.
