Since the release of the Vision Zero Chicago (VZC) Action Plan in June 2017, the City has made headway towards eliminating traffic fatalities and serious injuries. VZC is dedicated to this mission and to achieving this ambitious goal. The 2017-2018 Annual Report details these achievements, reflects the successes of the first year and a half of the VZC initiative, and outlines the work still to be done.
The implementation of VZC is structured around foundational initiatives that guide Vision Zero work and three strategy areas under which individual projects are organized. The 2017-2018 Annual Report provides an overview of the work completed within the foundational initiatives and each strategy area, features spotlight projects as examples of the breadth of the work completed, and provides a look at the VZC work coming in 2019.
