#SharetheRoadNS Open House Highlights

No Comments »

On Tuesday March 8, Dalhousie Transportation Collaboratory hosted the #SharetheRoadNS Open House at Dalhousie University. This open house was to highlight the success and experiences of the many stakeholders to Share the Road initiative, and discuss what’s working, what’s missing and what’s next for share the road education and awareness across Nova Scotia. The event began with Dr. Ahsan Habib highlighting the lessons learned from the campaign, and partners Dave MacIsaac (Halifax Regional Municipality) and Gord Tate (Municipality of the District of Chester) discussing their experiences with the Share the Road initiative. Following the presentations, open discussion commenced through dialogue with a knowledge lead, drawn from the transportation and road safety community. Six topic areas were discussed where safety issues can occur between different road users. From these discussions there were three key points that kept presenting themselves, including the need to advocate for transit as this will encourage walking and biking, the need to educate all road users on the rules of the road and importance of sharing the road, and the need to further promote the Share the Road campaign and build additional partnerships.

DalTRAC would like to thank everyone who attended and contributed to the success of the event. The full #SharetheRoadNS Open House workshop report will be released to http://www.dal.ca/sites/share-the-road/get-involved.html in the upcoming weeks.
