VISION ZERO brings together the policies, partnerships, and technologies that prevent death and serious injury from traffic crashes. Traffic crashes are not “accidents.” We acknowledge that traffic deaths are preventable and unacceptable, and commit to using all available tools to influence the conditions and behaviors that lead to serious crashes.
WORKING TOGETHER, we can eliminate traffic deaths and life-altering injury. The Vision Zero initiative builds a partnership between City leadership and the public to prioritize human life and the safety of our streets. The vision Zero Chicago Action Plan commits to reducing traffic crashes that cause death and serious injury through an equitable distribution of resources and inclusive community engagement.
CHICAGO’S VISION ZERO Action Plan is a guiding document identifying the City’s priorities and resources for traffic safety initiatives through 2019. Under the leadership of the Office of the Mayor, more than a dozen City departments and sister agencies collaborated to develop the plan.
