Safe Systems is a key difference between Vision Zero and a traditional approach to traffic safety. Yet, we acknowledge that a “systems-based approach” can sound like esoteric jargon that does not translate easily to action or motivation for those on the ground working to reduce traffic fatalities and injuries in their communities. In this December […]
We are seeing a growing number of local communities recognize that their speed limits are set too high, sending the wrong message and encouraging less-than-safe behaviors. And fortunately, more and more of these communities are stepping up to attempt to change their speed limits to prioritize safety over speed. But, we know the process is […]
Investments in transit are investments in traffic safety - that was a key takeaway from our most recent webinar, "Aligning Public Transit & Vision Zero for Better Communities." While each presenter approached the topic from a different perspective - data analysis, city planning, transit operations, advocacy - there is unanimity that improving public transit and […]
How do you catch the attention of people driving in order to not just talk about safety but actually motivate safe driving? We were pleased to be joined recently by city officials in Boston, Seattle, and San Antonio, as well as Cambridge Mobile Telematics (CMT), to learn about one promising strategy. In our September 28th […]
New Analysis Shows Need for Greater Collaboration It is clear to most that advancing Vision Zero requires making improvements to roadways and managing speed, but one of the less-acknowledged strategies toward safety is boosting our public transit systems, according to a new analysis released by the American Public Transportation Association (APTA).

When discussing traffic safety, the lives so deeply impacted by injuries and fatalities can sometimes be minimized in technical and scientific jargon. Discussions about "level-of-service" for drivers or standards for traffic control devices tend to ignore the emotional and societal toll of 40,000 lives lost to traffic fatalities each year in the U.S. Fortunately, the […]
More mid-sized cities are committing to Vision Zero. For Fort Lauderdale, the need was urgent: the city was consistently ranked as one of the worst places for traffic fatalities, and residents identified safety as a top concern. In this Vision Zero 101 webinar, Vision Zero Network’s Founder and Director Leah Shahum presented the core Vision […]
The world’s fifth largest metropolitan area is helping more people move about safely, while also demonstrating that Vision Zero is a viable solution for communities well beyond its birthplace of Europe. Mexico City committed to Vision Zero in 2015, and in its first two years has successfully reduced traffic deaths by a notable 18%, including […]
Lessons from New York City and Seattle Vision Zero's Safe Systems approach means moving beyond a rearward review of crash maps to a forward-facing focus on trends and patterns to help identify future problem areas and work to prevent severe crashes before they happen. This means determining, analyzing, and addressing the underlying risk factors that […]
Quality street lighting can sometimes be overlooked as an important strategy for improving safety, but it should be a component seriously considered in Vision Zero planning and implementation. New developments in lighting and smart technology are giving cities more flexibility in choices and data to target problem areas and make effective improvements to safety on […]
