Why the Coalition for a Safer 63 & 881?
Highway 63 and Highway 881 around the oil sands and Athabasca area have seen hundreds of vehicle-related injuries and dozens of fatalities over the past several years.
These tragedies point to the need for change – and twinning Highway 63 and Highway 881 is only part of the solution. The other part is changing how we drive. That’s where the Coalition for a Safer 63 & 881 comes in. We work to engage and educate drivers, helping them identify their dangerous driving habits and offering them safe alternatives.
Our members range from oil sands developers, pipeline companies and industry groups to regional municipalities, safety organizations and the media. We come from different backgrounds, but have one important thing in common – a goal to make Highway 63 and Highway 881 safer for our families, friends, employees and stakeholders, many of whom travel them every day.View the Coalition Members
