Community Cruisers strongly supports the global movement to slow the speed of automotive traffic on community roads where people live, work, shop and play. The World Health Organization has taken the lead in stating that the maximum speed limit in these areas should be 30 kph.  We enthusiastically call on our municipal leaders to make this happen in Banff and Canmore!

Please click on the button below to express your support for 30 kph speed limits. We’ll add your name to the growing list of supporters for our Love 30 kph campaign.  

Why do we love 30 kph where we live, work and play?

  • It makes it more comfortable and enjoyable to go by bike, scooter, skateboard, wheelchair, or on foot.
  • It’s safer and more enjoyable when car traffic moves slower. The number of collisions and the severity of injuries in collisions are both reduced.
  • Data from other towns & cities shows more people will switch from driving to walking & wheeling, which reduces traffic congestion.
  • You’ll still arrive on time! Reducing speed from 50 kph to 30 kph is proven to have minimal impact on travel times.
  • It’s good for the environment. Vehicles travelling at 30 kph emit less pollutants, including greenhouse gases, than those travelling at 50 kph.
  • Less cars on our streets means improved local air quality. We now know that inhaling even the smallest amounts of exhaust emissions is toxic to the body, especially the brain.
  • Cars don’t shop, people do! Encouraging people to get out of their cars and experience our business sectors by bike and on foot, means they will spend more money at our businesses.
  • Research has shown that a 10 kph reduction in speed can produce a noise reduction of up to 40%.
