ROAD USER SAFETY PROGRAM - VOTE 2703

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

Ontario holds a leading position as one of the safest road jurisdictions in North America. The Ministry of Transportation's road safety program 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, commercial carriers and motor vehicles; inspect, monitor and enforce compliance with those standards; manage and deliver commercial vehicle safety programs; promote public awareness of road safety; manage revenue derived from driver and vehicle licences; focus on the customer by creating faster, smarter, more efficient products and services; and manage and protect personal information and identity. It also supports the delivery of programs for other ministries.

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