In addition to addressing these and other unsafe driving behaviours, we recognize the importance of protecting our most vulnerable road users – bicyclists, pedestrians and motorcyclists – to reduce their likelihood of traffic injuries, as well as to improve the future of active transportation for a healthier Manitoba.
