The fact that speed is a factor in at least one-third of roadway deaths in the U.S. is well known in traffic safety circles. Yet, for too long, we have made little progress in addressing America’s tragic – and preventable – speed problem.  Why? Part of the reason, we believe, is that we’ve been focusing […]
When it comes to advancing Vision Zero, data is crucial to set goals and strategies and measure progress to eliminate roadway fatalities and serious injuries. One key step is identifying your community’s High Injury Network (HIN) to show where the high numbers of traffic deaths and serious injuries are occurring. This should also help set […]
In developing a Vision Zero Action Plan, the process can be just as important as the product. That’s because moving from commitment to action takes more than words, or even good ideas, written into a plan. Progress takes building buy-in for changing the status quo and developing strong relationships with key stakeholders who understand and […]
What is the Safe System approach and why is it so important to a successful Vision Zero planning effort? These are the questions we asked roadway safety practitioners in our webinar, Building a Safe System Foundation for Your Plan.  We talked to Vision Zero leaders from Tacoma, WA; Philadelphia; and Denver Regional Council of Governments […]
Overview of Key Steps & Strategies With unacceptably high numbers of roadway deaths and new federal funding dedicated to Vision Zero planning and implementation, now is the time to ensure your community is building a strong, actionable foundation for safe mobility, including using effective and equitable strategies.   Whether yours is one of the 450+ communities […]
If yours is like most cities in the U.S., you’ve got a speed problem. Not just a speeding problem, in which people are breaking the law by driving above the posted limit, but also, just as importantly, a speed problem, in which street- and vehicle-design and the way speeds are set actually encourage higher, less […]
An increasing number of communities in the U.S. are leaning into the Safe System approach, which is fundamental to making Vision Zero progress. With much-needed, new federal funding dedicated to Vision Zero planning and implementation and higher-level federal commitment, now is the time to make sure your community’s foundational work toward safe mobility for all […]
Too often, severe traffic crashes are seen as distinct tragedies that happen independently of each other. However, the reality is that these tragedies share common traits, are predictable, and can be prevented. The traffic deaths and serious injuries we hear about every day are largely the results of the current systems that normalize crashes and […]
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 […]
As we wrote recently, states need to up the ante for roadway safety. Nowhere is bolder, more effective safety action needed – and possible – than at the state level. It is time for changes to the status quo in all 50 states, whose leaders have outsized influence on what happens – or does not happen – for safety on our roadways, sidewalks and bikeways. Our June 7, 2022 webinar, shared examples of states taking on this challenge – including Massachusetts and Colorado – and opportunities for much more progress on the safety front, especially given increased funding from the new Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and stepped-up safety leadership at the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT).
