MAIN HEADING: ROAD USER SAFETY PROGRAM - VOTE 2703

Back to the Ministry of Transportation Summary page

 

The Road User Safety Program develops and implements strategies to improve road safety and mobility through driving behaviour and motor vehicle safety.

Ontario holds a leading position as one of the safest jurisdictions in North America. The Ministry of Transportation's road safety programs leads and actively participates with other jurisdictions in Canada and the United States in developing and promoting road safety initiatives and best practices. The Program works with many partners including police, community groups, safety organizations and the private sector to reduce fatalities and injuries on our roads.

The key responsibilities of the Program are to: set safety standards and develop policies, programs, legislation and regulations for road users, carriers and vehicles; inspect, monitor and enforce compliance with those standards; manage and deliver commercial vehicle safety programs and promote public awareness of road safety. It also supports the delivery of programs for other ministries.

The Program establishes policies and standards, and oversees the delivery of drivers and vehicle licensing and registration and other services by our government and private sector partners.
