Traffic safety and enforcement

Strathcona County’s RCMP and Enforcement Services, work together to make our community safer. 

There is a strong link between traffic enforcement and traffic safety outcomes.

Working to improve safety

Strathcona County's Transportation, Planning and Engineering department works together with RCMP and Enforcement Services, to identify high-risk locations and behaviours. This information helps target enforcement efforts.

Monitoring crash trends

RCMP and Enforcement Services review crash trends from the previous year to help plan for key focus areas for the upcoming year. In Strathcona County, key focus areas include:

  • Intersections - the majority of fatal and serious injury crashes in the County are intersection-related.
  • Speed - speed increases both the frequency and severity of motor vehicle collisions. Following the Safer System approach, both high and low level speeding are a priority for enforcement.

Enforcement

In September 2011, Strathcona County Council voted to remove mobile photo radar enforcement and approved hiring five additional enforcement officers (Strathcona County Community Peace Officers) to conduct speed enforcement and target other driving behaviours that place motorists at risk.

Intersection Safety Devices (ISDs), including red light cameras and speed on green detection cameras, continue to be used at several intersections in Sherwood Park.
