Component 1: Accident Prevention

Definition

Measures intended to prevent accidents.

Clientele

The general public.

Goal

Lower accident risks.

Sample Measures

The SAAQ and the Ministère des Transports both help make our roads safer: the SAAQ, by conducting safety awareness campaigns, managing the right to drive and supervising the road network, and the Ministère, by building new roads and improving existing ones.

These measures, combined with legislation and police surveillance, have made it possible to significantly reduce the number of deaths on Québec’s roads since 1978.
