Sample Action Plans
Vision Zero plans should be clear, aspirational, inspiring and tangible. Like any good action plan, it should be specific, measurable, realistic, operate on a clear timeline and involve all of the necessary stakeholders in order to be successfully implemented.
Studies & Reports
Data collection and measurement is a key attribute of any Vision Zero initiative. How data is used to communicate about and evaluate progress toward goals should reflect the values of the overall strategy. What gets measured gets cared about — make it count!
