This week, we released our Two-Year Vision Zero Action Strategy for 2017-2018, the foundation for how and why San Francisco is working to end traffic deaths on our streets.
The document comes just as the San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously adopted a resolution this week urging the California State Legislature and Governor to pass California State Assembly Bill 342, the Safe Streets Act of 2017. This bill would give San Francisco and San Jose the authority to pilot automated speed enforcement – a proven, cost-effective solution to help us move toward Vision Zero.
Our new Vision Zero Action Strategy outlines the initiatives city departments must lead to reach that goal, the challenges we face and the drive behind our commitment to making it a reality. It’s also a look at our progress since San Francisco adopted Vision Zero in 2014, including the number of lives lost in 2016 and the impact of our efforts to bring it to zero.
The strategy is focused on three main outcomes San Francisco needs to achieve to eliminate traffic fatalities: Safe streets, safe people and safe vehicles.
