It’s encouraging to see the growing appetite – and funding – for quick-to-install, low-cost solutions to improve roadway safety in our communities. We showcased some of these at our June 26, 2024 webinar, sharing quick-build examples from across the country. We were joined by a Vision Zero Network sponsor, MPS, to learn about their SafetyStick™, […]
What does it mean when you hear that “Vision Zero is more than a goal? And more than just a slogan?”  It means that advancing Vision Zero is not about working harder or caring about safety more – it is about doing things differently. Vision Zero – and the underlying Safe System approach – is […]
While transportation is most often thought of as how we get  from one place to another—it's also about access and opportunity and our sense of place and community. So, efforts to advance Vision Zero is not just about the work that planners and engineers do, it’s an opportunity for everyone who uses the transportation system […]
Traditionally, vehicle safety has been considered a federal issue. So, understandably, many municipalities have shied away from including vehicle-related safety issues in their Vision Zero plans. But there are important ways that local communities can – and should – add this important Safe System component into their local road safety work. Learn more and hear […]

Managing speeds is a critical – if not the critical – strategy to advance Vision Zero. Recognizing this, communities are looking for ways to more rapidly pilot and implement effective actions to reduce speeds. And, fortunately, funding – including from the new federal Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) grant program – is increasingly […]
Note we have a resource, Prioritizing Health Equity in Vision Zero Planning, outlining more actionable steps to integrate equity priorities in Vision Zero planning, decision-making, strategies, investments and more.  With growing focus on Vision Zero – safe mobility for all people – there is an important opportunity to align the goals of roadway safety with […]
In the U.S., BIPOC and low-income communities experience an alarmingly high and disproportionate burden of risk on our roadways. The need for change is urgent. And the opportunity is ripe for policymakers, roadway safety professionals and Vision Zero advocates to address this tragic – and preventable – racial and income gap in safety outcomes. Vision […]
How do we know if we are making progress on Vision Zero goals in a community? What are ways to communicate promising steps that may not be visible to all? How about the challenges that need to be addressed? And, how do we continue to learn and evolve to reach our Vision Zero goals?  These […]
