As the Town of Okotoks continues to grow, traffic safety remains a high priority for both motorists and pedestrians traveling along streets throughout the community. It doesn’t matter if you walk, ride a bicycle, or drive, traffic safety affects you and your family every day. You are encouraged to use the following tips to ensure your safety as well as that of others.

The best advice for driving during or after a snow event, is to not drive at all, if you can avoid it. Don’t go out until the snow plows and sanding trucks have had a chance to do their work, and allow yourself extra time to reach your destination. If you must drive in snowy conditions, make sure your car is prepared, and that you know how to handle road conditions. Make sure that you clean ALL the snow and ice off your car. This includes the windshield, back window, headlights, and taillights!

Have you noticed the maintenance route signs around Town on Priority 1 (arterial and downtown roads) and Priority 2 (collector roads)?  ​A parking ban is a temporary parking restriction on roads designated as maintenance routes. Parking bans allow crews to work on the roadways more efficiently when they don’t have to operate around parked cars.  When maintenance is necessary, the Town will declare a parking ban along the impacted roadways and will try to provide 48 hours notice. The Town of Okotoks uses a variety of channels to let you know when a maintenance route parking ban is coming into effect, is in effect and when it’s lifted.
