The U.N. has named 2010-2020 as the Decade of Road Safety. What most people don’t know is that Canada actually had a 10 year plan too. I was called the Road Safety Vision and it took place from 2000-2010.
The goal was to cut Motor Vehicle Collisions Involving Impaired Driving from 34% to 17%.
The Insurance Bureau of Canada currently puts that number around 40% (depending on where you look – it goes provincially, so I averaged it and then still went low).
Is it any wonder that we couldn’t adhere to the Kyoto accord when we can’t even adhere to our own goals?
