If you notice an issue on a non-residential road causing safety concerns for vehicles, pedestrians, or bicyclists, you can contact the Vision Zero Specialist (email@example.com). When staff receives a notice about a safety concern from citizens, ACC staff or Commissioners, a Road Safety Audit is scheduled where staff from various departments conduct a field review. During this review, staff walks the area in question to look for issues such as site distance, vehicle speed, trip hazards or poor storm drainage then makes recommendations to the appropriate ACC department/division to remedy the problem.
