How We Said Thanks

Thousands of Albertans pledged to drive safely in construction zones

Throughout the busy construction season of 2016, our goal remained the same from previous years: make construction on Alberta’s roads, highways and utilities safer for everyone.

So, we asked Albertans to step up and pledge to drive safely through construction zones. Then you all blew us away. Our modest goal of achieving 2,500 pledges was doubled, and then some!

By the end of October, 7,281 Albertans vowed to slow down in construction zones. And we, the Partners in Road Construction Safety, are extremely grateful.

When people took the pledge, we sent out small tokens of thanks in the form of gift cards for a coffee and a cookie. And we even wrote a song to say thank you. See the video above.
