What is Vision Zero?

“Vision Zero” is a strategy to eliminate all traffic fatalities and severe injuries, while increasing safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all. A movement that began in Europe and now spread to American Cities, rooted in the philosophy that no loss of life, due to road crashes, is acceptable or inevitable and therefore sets the goal of reducing fatalities and severe injuries to zero. Vision Zero is a multidisciplinary approach, bringing together diverse and necessary stakeholders to address this complex problem. Vision Zero acknowledges that many factors contribute to safe mobility. Roadway design, speeds, behaviors, technology, and policies all contribute to safe mobility.

More information on the nationwide Vision Zero movement can be found on the Vision Zero Network website: https://visionzeronetwork.org/

The City of Salinas is actively implementing safety projects, programs and efforts consistent with Vision Zero.
