Advancing Vision Zero entails prioritizing safety in all parts of the transportation system, especially those vehicles spending the most time on the roads. Municipal fleets are an important part of this equation, whether they’re used to plow snow, respond to fires and emergencies or allow city employees to drive on official business. City-contracted fleets – whether for trash pickup or school drop-offs – also deserve attention. In this webinar, the Vision Zero Network partners with Together for Safer Roads to learn from the pros on clear strategies for fleet safety.

If zero traffic fatalities and serious injuries is our goal, a Safe Systems approach is how we can get there. And for that, we’ll need to pivot our work.
Perhaps your community or agency has made — or is considering — a Vision Zero commitment, but you’re still wondering: How do we really get there? What are the concrete next steps and changes that should be made?
Join us to learn the fundamentals of the Safe Systems approach, which underlies effective Vision Zero programs, and specific examples at the local, state, and federal levels of shifting from a traditional approach to Safe Systems. The discussion will highlight ways Safe Systems is both more effective and more equitable, bringing a public health-focused approach that emphasizes a safe built environment, rather than over-reliance on enforcement or education campaigns.
