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.
