Focus on Equity, Results & Accountability
As momentum – and federal funding – supporting Vision Zero in the U.S. grow, we must ensure that passion and pledges result in meaningful action and progress toward the goal of safe mobility for all people.
Core Elements for Vision Zero Communities helps leaders recognize that Vision Zero is more than a goal or a tagline or, even, a program. Real commitment to Vision Zero entails taking significant actions to change the status quo to advance safe mobility goals. This resource is designed to help communities work toward tangible and equitable results, benchmark progress toward safety, and ensure accountability.
