Safety Checks: Important For Us All
The SVAA is dedicated to the preservation, restoration, and enjoyment of all antique,
collector, vintage and specialty vehicles. One of the most effective ways we can contribute to
the achievement of our mission is to ensure that our vehicles are as safe as possible. This is
a natural fit with the highway safety objectives of the Alberta government.
We are indeed privileged as the province has no desire to enter into the safety check
business preferring to leave it to the hobby to monitor itself. To that end, the SVAA has done
two things to help the hobbyist with safety checks.

they have completed a Safety Check and their vehicle has
In the interest of our being able to continue the self-monitoring safety checks, the SVAA
encourages you to do a Safety Check on your vehicle, report its completion to your club and
encourage your club to report the total number of Safety Checks done to the SVAA at
road in a safe, roadworthy condition can only reinforce our already excellent relations with the
Government of Alberta.
