Vision Zero SF
Everyone in San Francisco deserves to feel safe on city streets. Every year in San Francisco, about 30 people lose their lives and over 500 more are severely injured while traveling on city streets. These deaths and injuries are unacceptable and preventable, and San Francisco is committed to stopping further loss of live. That’s why our transportation agency joined city leaders in 2014 to adopt a policy called Vision Zero, with the goal of eliminating all traffic deaths in San Francisco.
San Francisco is a world-class city. No mistake on the road should result in the loss of life.
Please join us in our mission to end traffic deaths.
The Vision Zero Action Strategy outlines the initiatives and actions Vision Zero San Francisco will take to advance Vision Zero. The strategy was developed by the City and County of San Francisco, co-chaired by the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency and Department of Public Health, with leadership from the Mayor’s Office and the Board of Supervisors, and in coordination with local community groups and advocacy organizations.
Vision Zero is a data-driven approach to improve safety on city streets. SFMTA advances design and engineering strategies, especially focused on slowing speeds and reducing conflicts on High Injury Network Streets. SFMTA tracks its design and engineering progress in a Safe Streets Dashboard.
