What opportunities exist to create safer, more equitable streets and neighborhoods?
How can law enforcement be applied more effectively to improve safety in low-income communities and communities of color?
What about the use of safety cameras to lessen the chance of racial profiling?
Last week, we at Vision Zero Network held a twitter chat, co-hosted with Safe Routes to School Partnership. Lots of people participated and we got many good ideas. A summary of the chat can be found here.
The Vision Zero Network is committed to helping communities reach their goal of Vision Zero — eliminating all traffic fatalities and severe injuries — while increasing safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all.
The Vision Zero Network is a collaborative campaign aimed at building the momentum and advancing this game-changing shift toward safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all. Focusing initially on leading-edge cities demonstrating commitment and potential, the Network will bring together local leaders in health, traffic engineering, police enforcement, policy and advocacy to develop and share winning strategies and to support strong, distributed leadership for policies and practices that make Vision Zero a reality.
We believe a strong, successful Vision Zero campaign can set a new standard for safety on our streets — and build toward a nationwide movement that prioritizes safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all.
You can see how many cities have committed to Vision Zero goals — 18 U.S. cities in just the last 2.5 years– by visiting here.
