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.
To reach this goal, the City is developing a Vision Zero Action Plan aimed at eliminating traffic deaths and severe injuries in Sacramento. The Plan will identify the factors contributing to traffic deaths and severe injuries, and proven safety countermeasures to those factors integrating education, traffic engineering, enforcement, and evaluation.
The Vision Zero Action Plan will be developed in partnership with key stakeholders through a Vision Zero Task Force.
