Last week, we released our Two-Year Vision Zero Action Strategy for 2017-2018, the foundation for how and why San Francisco is working to end traffic deaths on our streets.
Our new Vision Zero Action Strategy outlines the initiatives city departments must lead to reach that goal, the challenges we face and the drive behind our commitment to making it a reality. It’s also a look at our progress since San Francisco adopted Vision Zero in 2014, including the number of lives lost in 2016 and the impact of our efforts to bring it to zero.
The strategy is focused on three main outcomes San Francisco needs to achieve to eliminate traffic fatalities: Safe streets, safe people and safe vehicles.
It’s important to remember that traffic fatalities aren’t just numbers. The victims of these tragic and preventable collisions are family members, friends and neighbors. In documenting our efforts and progress to end these deaths, we reaffirm our city’s commitment to do more, faster to reach Vision Zero.
