Ontario’s roads among safest in North America

Latest statistics show that the number of people killed on Ontario’s roads has fallen to the lowest number since 1950. Premier Dalton McGuinty’s government recognized the province’s road safety partners on May 5, who have helped to make the province’s roads among the safest in North America. In addition, the government notes it has continued to act to cut the rate of death and injury further, including adopting measures to address impaired driving and street racing.
