Vision Zero from the Inside-Out
A Case Study on Prioritizing Interdepartmental Coordination & Accountability
Vision Zero infrastructure and policy changes don’t just happen in a vacuum. It all starts with internal commitment, leadership and clear accountability to prioritize safety. Our new case study shares in-depth tips on the importance of planning and coordinating among diverse stakeholders to ensure successful actions, measure progress, and to report back to the public.
New York City, the country’s longest standing Vision Zero program, has developed an impressive and rigorous Vision Zero program life cycle and monitoring system to strategically coordinate and track progress among no fewer than 11 city departments, as well as other stakeholders. The careful coordination among the departments and internal strategies used to consistently track and evaluate safety efforts stand as a model for other Vision Zero cities.
