What is Vision Zero?


Each year, thousands of people are killed in roadway crashes and millions more are injured.  It doesn’t have to be this way. Vision Zero aspires to eliminate all traffic fatalities and severe injuries by increasing safe, active, and equitable mobility for all.  Vision Zero is more than a dream.  It is an attainable objective that prioritizes proven safety strategies, encourages a shared goal of zero deaths, focuses on data driven decision making, and implements a safe systems approach. ZERO.  That is the only acceptable number of traffic deaths and serious injuries from roadway crashes. You can help us reach zero deaths by following these easy steps:
