For any country, road safety is always a major concern. Both government and individuals work towards making highways safer. In 2008, Canada was ranked 10th in terms of fatalities per billion kilometers. This was a statistic from the Road Safety Ranking among OECD member countries.
Canada’s road safety strategy has evolved over the years. If you wish to work at a governmental level to improve the safety of highways, then you should probably consider a career in the field of Justice and Public Safety. One of the key career options in this stream is becoming a commercial vehicle and transportation officer. The main duties of a commercial vehicle and transportation officer are to ensure public safety, protect people’s investment in the transportation infrastructure and support the province’s economic development and prosperity.
