Vision Zero is more than a goal, more than a tagline, more than even just a program. It is a fundamental shift in how we approach roadway safety.
Thanks to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s (USDOT) commitment to zero roadway deaths nationally and its shift to a Safe System approach, which underpins Vision Zero, we are seeing stepped-up policy and funding commitments to help communities prioritize safety.
We want to help your community leverage these important funding opportunities to advance Vision Zero, starting with the USDOT’s new Safe Streets and Roads (SS4A) grant program. Note that the deadline is September 15, 2022.
Check out Vision Zero Network’s suggestions to make the most of this funding opportunity:
