Canada’s roads and highways are our chief movers of people, goods, and services. It is critical to our society, and our economy that, roadways are kept safe and in good repair, and that we seek innovative data-driven solutions to infrastructure issues.
Since its inception, CAA has encouraged the development and management of road infrastructure that is safe and efficient. This vision recognizes the need for adequate public investment in modern transportation infrastructure and technology. It never forgets that better-engineered roads are also safer roads, for all who travel on or beside them.
Smart infrastructure takes many forms in the 21st century. It’s not just about concrete and asphalt. It encompasses complete street design, so pedestrians, cyclists and motorists can all travel safely and efficiently. It includes planning now for autonomous vehicles, and the use of technology to improve traffic flows.
