The Government of Alberta has launched online surveys to hear from Albertans about rules for helmet use for off-highway vehicle riders on public land and penalties for excessive speeding. The feedback from Albertans will help inform decisions to increase safety and decrease transportation-related injuries and deaths.
Individual Albertans are invited to respond to the survey available at Traffic Safety Act – Off Highway Survey.
