Executive Directive 10-03 Pedestrian Safety in San Francisco
Wednesday, October 30, 2013
On December 20, 2010, former San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom signed an Executive Directive to both implement short-term priority pedestrian safety actions and to create and implement a longer-term Pedestrian Action Plan to make it safer to walk in San Francisco.
The Executive Directive creates targets for the reduction of serious and fatal pedestrian injuries and creates a citywide target of a 25% reduction in serious and fatal pedestrian injuries by 2016 and 50% reduction by 2021. These injury prevention goals should be linked with a complementary citywide goal of increasing walking as a share of trips in the City.
