VISION ZERO

SACRAMENTO IS A VISION ZERO CITY. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?

Sacramento is a Vision Zero City. What does this mean? Vision Zero is a traffic safety philosophy that rejects the notion that traffic crashes are simply “accidents,” but instead preventable incidents that can and must be systematically addressed. Through Vision Zero, the City of Sacramento and its partners are committed to working together to create safer streets.

WHAT IS SACRAMENTO DOING TO ACCOMPLISH VISION ZERO?

On January 19, 2017, City Council adopted a resolution adopting the follow goal: 

The City of Sacramento will work collaboratively in a data-driven effort to eliminate traffic fatalities and serious injuries by 2027. 

The City's Vision Zero Action Plan documents data analysis and Council adopted actions to help us reach this goal. 

VISION ZERO SCHOOL SAFETY STUDY

The School Safety Study documents conditions for students walking, bicycling, taking the bus, or being dropped off at 20 schools throughout the City. The study includes short-term and long-term recommendations including signing, pavement marking and traffic calming improvements. Recommendations may also include, where appropriate, lower school area speed limits on all eligible roadways.
