The policy marks a significant step in the city’s evolving mobility strategy and mirrors similar action taken by major cities around the world. Many of the cities have reported steady declines in traffic fatalities and injuries over the last few years after implementing Vision Zero.
“Some will say this goal is unachievable. But I say, “no loss of life is acceptable on our roadways, None, ZERO,” Mayor Turner said. “Together we can create change, together we can make a difference, together we can shift the way we think about mobility and traffic safety, and not only see the Vision, but make it possible.”
