As the City of Vancouver aims for zero transportation fatalities, there’s a drop in incidents involving pedestrians and cyclists.
The city says this is because of pedestrian safety measures such as new countdown timers, LED lighting, left turn changes and slower walk speeds.
Recent upgrades have seen improvements with new pedestrian signals reporting a 96 per cent drop in collisions.
City staff recommend other improvements such as rapid flashing beacons at pedestrian crossings.
Police will also be stepping up enforcement at priority locations and cracking down on dangerous behaviours.
