Thank you for stopping by this page to learn a little bit more about the Alta Vista Safe Streets program. Traffic issues are among the top concerns that are received by the Councillor’s office. My staff and I will work closely with the Traffic Department to address identified problem areas in a timely and cost-effective way.
Upon receiving your concerns, we will deploy a radar sign, which collects speed and car count information from that particular area. When appropriate, we will implement existing strategies that have proven effective, while always considering and seeking innovative traffic calming approaches.
As part of our Safe Streets initiative, we have invested in a number of solar powered speed display boards through the Temporary Traffic Calming (TTC) program. You’ve likely passed by one of these boards while travelling through Alta Vista, but in case you haven’t, here are their locations:

These speed display boards were installed between May 2017 and July 2017, and will remain in their current locations for at least one year.
We have received the data from the first quarter (July-September) and are pleased to be able to share that data with you.
Please be advised of the following:
- There may be gaps in the data due to the lack of adequate sunlight on a particular day to power a specific speed display board
- We have provided the report that is currently available through the vendor, Kalitec. TTC will continue to work with the vendor to further develop the reporting capabilities
I strongly encourage you to provide your feedback on the program by emailing us at JeanCloutierOtt@ottawa.ca.
Please take the time to slow down when driving in our community.
