Road Safety For Pedestrians, Cyclists, and Drivers

There have been too many accidents on HRM streets.  In most cases, everyone is a pedestrian at some point in their commute and travels, whether that be walking or using a wheelchair to your destination, walking from your vehicle, walking from the bus, or even walking your bike.  Pedestrians and cyclists are much more physically vulnerable than motor vehicle drivers.  HRM needs to make more improvements, more quickly.

Sadly, there are too many "ghost bicycle" memorials around HRM, where cyclists have tragically lost their lives.  Andrew will advocate to completely connect bike lanes and to make it mandatory for HRM trucks and contracted trucks to have side guards.  Truck side guards help protect pedestrians and cyclists when collisions happen.  Several cities in North America have adopted this policy.

   Andrew's Plan   
  • Improve crosswalk systems

  • Will work to get 40 Km/h MAX speed limit in residential areas

  • Add sidewalks leading to schools where they are needed

  • High visibility crosswalks at all schools

  • Completely connected bike lanes

  • Add speed humps to calm speeding

  • Mobile photo radar - where excessive speeders are sent a ticket in the mail

  • Improve streets - pedestrian and bike friendly

  • Advocate for truck side guards on large HRM vehicles and on those owned by HRM contractors -  garbage trucks, box vans, dump trucks, cement trucks, Etc.

  • Take action based on expert recommendations and best practices
