Action Plan Goals

 

THE FOUR GOALS in this plan use data to prioritize the City's resources how and where they will be most effective. The first goal sets targets by location, while the remaining three implement policies, partnerships, and technologies with benefits citywide.

GOAL 1: INVEST EQUITABLY

Invest equitably in communities that are most affected by severe traffic crashes. While severe traffic crashes are a persistent problem across the city, crash data show certain communities are more seriously impacted than others.

GOAL 2: A CULTURE OF SAFETY

Work to change behaviors and perceptions to build a citywide culture of safety. A traffic crash is not simply an "accident," but the result of preventable behaviors and conditions that led to the crash.

GOAL 3: SAFER STREETS

Make streets safer for all users. There is safety in numbers. When more people are walking and biking, the risk of severe crashes decreases.

GOAL 4: SAFER DRIVERS & VEHICLES

Encourage and implement policies, training, and technologies that create safer vehicles and professional drivers. Those who drive vehicles professionally have a special responsibility to prioritize safety on the roadway.
