Bringing traffic fatalities to zero

Wed, 2016-10-05 11:24 -- kate.lautens

Earlier this year, 10 cities across the US stepped up to join the Vision Zero Focus Cities program, which aims to eliminate traffic fatalities and severe injuries through initiatives including enforcement, education, and smarter street design.

The cities involved in the program are developing and sharing best practices to create a prototype to be used in other communities for the safety of all road users.

Improving Walkability within Existing Urban Design

Ideas about urban transportation and planning are changing. For many areas of the country, road and highway infrastructure is at or over capacity. In addition, demographics are changing and with that change comes the demand for greater community connectivity on many levels. The convergence of these two factors is creating a shift in urban planning focus towards principles of multi-modal transportation, increased pedestrian service levels, and compact development.
