Traffic & Parking Enforcement

The City employs Bylaw officers to respond to traffic and parking concerns, as well as enforce the Traffic Safety Act. Below you will find some information on topics commonly discussed.


Traffic Safety Plan

Grande Prairie Enforcement Services (GPES) is committed to road safety through the development of a viable Traffic Safety Plan.  This plan will focus on education, commercial vehicle inspections, vehicle defects, and general traffic enforcement, both moving and non-moving.  The Traffic Safety Plan is meant to be a living document, which will give the plan room to adjust to emerging trends and needs as they arise.
