What is this engagement about?
We are developing a new Motor Vehicles Act in order to improve traffic safety laws in Yukon. Since we will be replacing the existing Act with a brand new piece of legislation, we will be reviewing a wide range of traffic safety issues that affect all Yukoners, including:
- Driver licensing
- Fees and fines
- Territorial rules around impaired driving
- Road user safety
- Vehicle safety and condition
- Enforcement technology
- Off-road vehicles (ORV) and snowmobiles
How will my input make a difference?
Your feedback will help us understand Yukoners’ views on a number of existing and proposed traffic safety laws, and any other issues you are concerned about related to traffic safety. This input will inform the development of a new Motor Vehicles Act and will help us identify any issues we haven’t yet considered. The Government of Yukon is also seeking feedback from road user groups, municipalities and local advisory councils, First Nations governments, and other organizations that are involved in enforcing and advocating for traffic safety laws in Yukon.

Where can I find results?
The survey will be open to the public from April 2 to May 31. Once the survey closes, your feedback will be compiled into a What We Heard document. This report will include comments from the survey, information submitted during open houses, and any other feedback we received. The report will also give you a good a sense of where the public stands on a wide range of public policy issues around motor vehicle and road user safety.
