Vision Zero & You

Get Involved and Make a Difference

Recent efforts have emphasized our commitment to the community through strengthened programs and implementation. The key to success in achieving Vision Zero is a combined approach that involves the entire community and uses the five essential elements for a safe transportation system:

  1. Education- Communicate the importance of safety for all on our roads, whether a person is driving, bicycling, walking or riding.
  2. Encouragement- Encourage all to practice safety and follow all traffic laws.
  3. Engineering- Construct improvements to enhance safety and accessibility on our roads.
  4. Enforcement- Enforce traffic safety and continue to support safety initiatives such as Click It or Ticket It, Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving, and Distracted Driving.
  5. Evaluation- Evaluate traffic safety efforts and implement improvements as needed.

Below are ways that you can be a part of the Vision Zero movement:

  • Become a Vision Zero partner as an individual or as an organization
  • Support and volunteer with Vision Zero partner agencies
  • Take the Vision Zero Safety Pledge
  • Advocate for traffic safety for all road users
  • Participate in community dialogue regarding traffic safety
  • Utilize the City’s 311 system to report safety issues or concerns
  • Request a Vision Zero presentation or training
  • Organize a walk or bike audit of area infrastructure
  • Implement a mini-Siclovia or open streets event in your neighborhood
