Even one life lost in a traffic crash is unacceptable. We all have the right to walk, bike, take transit, and drive on streets that are safe for everyone, regardless of who we are or where we live.
Vision Zero unites the policies, partnerships, and technologies that prevent death and serious injury from traffic crashes. We acknowledge that traffic death are preventable and unacceptable, and commit to using all available tools to influence the conditions and behaviors that lead to serious crashes.
The Vision Zero initiative builds a partnership between the City leadership and the public to prioritize human life and safety on the roadway. Vision Zero Chicago’s three- year Action Plan will commit to addressing five goals through an equitable distribution of resources and inclusive community engagement.
Working together, we can eliminate traffic deaths.
