Vision Zero Provides Six Town Hall Meeting in Efforts to Eliminate Traffic Crashes

Vision Zero will have six town hall meetings hosted by the City of Columbia to allow citizens to learn about the organization, as well as give their input.

Vision Zero is a “global initiative founded on the belief that death and injury on city streets are preventable.”

The major components of the Vision Zero Action Plan include engineering, education, enforcement, evaluation and encouragement. The organization has proven successful results in New York City and Seattle.

Over the course of the last 10 years, an average of 62 people each year are killed or severely injured on account of traffic crashes. Vision Zero officials said that it “does not have to be this way” and through their approach, the company hopes to eliminate all traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2030.

Vision Zero Education Team, City Council members and members of the community can attend one of the six Vision Zero Town Hall meetings. They will provide food, as well as free childcare and firetrucks for the kids.

If you would like to be apart of any of the events, please find event details and RSVP links on the Vision Zero website.
