Subject: Traffic Safety Act Consultation Regarding Mandatory Helmets on public land for Off-Highway Vehicles

Good day,

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 http://www.alberta.ca/traffic-safety-act-consultation.aspx.

Key stakeholders such as businesses, not-for-profits, indigenous communities, municipalities, associations and clubs, that may be directly impacted by potential new rules for helmet use for off-highway vehicle riders on public land are encouraged to respond in a separate survey. Your response to the organization/stakeholder survey is valued and we thank you for taking time to share your input. For your convenience, attached is a copy of the survey questions. This document has been provided for your reference only.

Please submit all responses in the online group survey by September 25, 2016.

If you believe other groups should receive the link to the organization survey, please feel free to share the survey link.

If you wish to encourage your members to provide their individual feedback, please have them complete the public survey available here or at http://www.alberta.ca/traffic-safety-act-consultation.aspx.
