people are injured or killed on our roads each year
Take Back Our Roads is a road safety program that tackles dangerous roads and school zones across Canada to reduce serious injuries and fatalities.
To us, it doesn’t matter how you get around - drive, bike, or walk. Because we all share our roads, we all share in the responsibility to make them safer.
Here are some of the dedicated, passionate organizations that share our mission to make safer roads a reality.
