Mount Royal Community Traffic

As a new volunteer with the Mount Royal Community Association, I was drawn to join the association due to concern over traffic and safety in our community. As a mother of a teenager and a four-year-old, two dogs and a home that faces the street affectionately known as “The Mount Royal Highway”, I have personally witnessed countless traffic violations and unfortunately, several accidents. As anyone in the community is aware, the proximity of Mount Royal to the Downtown results in influx in commuter traffic, which is a growing concern just as Calgary is a growing city.

I would like to take the time to understand the concerns regarding traffic and the needs of the community toward the goal of a safe yet accessible community.

 

If you have a concern or a comment regarding traffic, please email: mrca@jamorel.com

To report an issue regarding safety and traffic in our community, please call 311.

TRAFFIC UPDATE - OCTOBER 2019

 

In a recent meeting with our CPS (Calgary Police Service) Community Liaison, we are reminded that as members of the community, it is very important that we report, report, report. Witness speeding? Report it. Careless driving? Report it. Suspicious activities that may go beyond the scope of traffic? Report those too.

Reports into the police help us to build a record of incidents which will be helpful in terms of advancing community safety initiatives. Without a history of incidents to point to when approaching the city with community concerns, it becomes a more challenging dialogue.

There is no incident too small (within reason of course) to report to the non-emergency hotline, 403-266-1234 or 311 or if reckless or dangerous driving, call 911.

Over the last three years the Calgary Police Service has developed a new unit to specifically address Residential Traffic Safety. This unit has been presenting to each Ward in the City to both provide and to solicit information on “problem areas” throughout the City to allow more specific and targeted visibility and enforcement. This unit is specifically interested in Residential TRAFFIC issues. The strategy has been:

• Utilize citizen feedback to inform operational response
• Focus on playground zones, pedestrian rich locations and other high risk locations identified through collision data analysis
• Emphasize public awareness and education, and facilitate citizen engagement through Ward Traffic Safety Meetings and to work with City partners to further support traffic calming measures outside enforcement

One of the key tools to help Calgary Police Service monitor and track these issues is the Traffic Service Request (TSR).
