Topic Summary:

Vision Zero Chicago is Chicago’s commitment to eliminating death and serious injury from traffic crashes by 2026. Vision Zero commits to several principles, most importantly, that traffic crashes are not “accidents,” and that the tools and technology exist to prevent loss of life. This comprehensive approach to traffic safety is a partnership to create a transportation system that will better serve all roadway users.

            The Vision Zero Action Plan is a guiding document identifying the City’s priorities and resources for traffic safety initiatives through 2019. The Action Plan was developed through the cooperation of a dozen City departments and agencies under the leadership of the Office of the Mayor. This presentation will introduce the Action Plan, the City’s goals, and the relationship to how the City designs its streets.
