We realize that all Vision Zero communities are unique, and strategies will vary, but there are some actions that are fundamental to Vision Zero. Our purpose in providing these guidelines is to clearly define core principles of Vision Zero, underscore baseline practices needed in any strong plan, and to lift up exemplary work from current Vision Zero communities.
The guide lays out two key areas of a strong Action Plan: Foundational Elements and Actionable Strategies, which are both underpinned by a process of continued Community Engagement and attention to prioritizing Equity. Model policies and examples from Vision Zero cities are included throughout, as well as how-tos for maintaining a focus on equity.
All together, the guidelines should help Vision Zero communities create an effective road map for action and a tool for measuring and assessing progress towards the bottom line goal of eliminating severe injury crashes and fatalities. Download a PDF.
