ESV '01 government of Canada status report 2001-06-0113
In the fall of 2000, the Council of Ministers agreed that Canada
should retain the vision of having the safest roads in the world,
and that a longer term successor plan, called Road Safety Vision
2010, carry forward the work of Canada's inaugural national
road safety plan. It was further agreed that the plan include an
overall national target and sub-targets.
A national target that calls for 30% decreases in the average
number of road users killed and seriously injured during the
2008-2010 period below comparable 1996-2001 figures is currently
under consideration. Achievement of this target would reduce
Canada's road fatality total to fewer than 2100 by 2010. The
proposed sub-targets address: seat belt wearing rates and proper
use of child restraints by all motor vehicle occupants; the number
of unbelted fatally or seriously injured occupants; the percent of
road users fatally or seriously injured in crashes involving a
drinking driver; the number of road users fatally or seriously
injured on rural roadways.
