Road Safety Programs

Speed Watch Program

The Speed Watch Program was established to address the challenge of speeding in our community.

Speed Watch Program volunteers use portable radar equipment and an electronic sign to give instant feedback to drivers. Data from the equipment is provided to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) to help with enforcement planning.

Please contact the RCMP Volunteer Services Supervisor at 604-467-7644 for more information regarding the Speed Watch Program or to become a volunteer.

Traffic Calming Program

Neighbourhood traffic issues such as high traffic volumes, shortcuts and speeding are a growing concern for many residents. The City of Maple Ridge is committed to providing effective traffic management plans and has prepared a Traffic Calming Policy to address neighbourhood traffic management.

The Traffic Calming Policy supports educational enforcement and some physical measures to address traffic issues. The program focus is to improve neighbourhood safety, comfort and livability while maintaining necessary levels of traffic circulation and emergency access. It encompasses a broad array of traffic education, enforcement and engineering techniques to slow and disperse or reroute traffic.

The Traffic Calming Policy was adopted by Council December 10, 2019.
