Why We Are a Partner of CRISP
Every year in the Capital Region thousands of people are injured or killed in preventable collisions resulting in substantial personal and financial costs. These collisions result in higher insurance premiums, increased wait times for emergency services and medical care, higher taxes, legal costs, lost productivity and travel delays. If we consider the pain and suffering of victims and their families the cost of these preventable collisions are almost immeasurable.
The City of Edmonton is committed to reducing the occurrence and severity of collisions throughout the capital region and is proud to be a member of CRISP.
