From Seattle to New York City, San Diego to Washington, D.C. a number of leading communities have committed to Vision Zero — while many others are considering and working toward such a commitment.

So what makes a Vision Zero Community? One that meets the following minimum criteria:

  • A clear goal of eliminating traffic fatalities and severe injuries has been set.
  • The Mayor has publicly, officially committed to Vision Zero.
  • A Vision Zero plan or strategy is in place, or the Mayor has committed to doing so in clear time frame.
  • Key departments (including police, transportation and public health) are engaged.
