Webinar Recap: Core Elements Build Confidence in Solid Vision Zero Efforts

by Veronica Vanterpool January 29, 2019 in News, Webinars

If you’re looking for a benchmark to measure the quality and substance of Vision Zero policies and approaches in your community, spend some time reading through our Core Elements for Vision Zero Communities and watching our Core Elements webinar, co-hosted with the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE).

The 10 Core Elements identify the most impactful focus areas underlying an authentic Vision Zero approach. This includes such things as a focus on speed management; proactive, predictive planning; and elevating equity and meaningful community engagement to guard against unintentional consequences, such as over-policing or racial bias.

Being a Vision Zero community is more than just making a declaration to save lives. It is a fundamental shift in how communities approach decisions, actions, and attitudes around safe mobility. Vision Zero recognizes that traffic fatalities and severe injuries are preventable; and, for the most part, we know what works. What’s needed most is greater public urgency and political will to implement the proven strategies to ensure safe mobility for all.

Learn more on this one-hour webinar (January 2019), led by the Vision Zero Network and ITE, about how to move from vision to action, to prioritize actions, then follow through with meaningful strategies. And see the full Vision Zero Core Elements here.
