Vision Zero: How Local Communities Are Zeroing in on a New Approach to Safe Mobility for All (10:15am-11:45am)

Thursday, September 14

Cities across the country are taking a new approach to traffic safety: Vision Zero. So, what’s behind the name? How does Vision Zero differ from the traditional approach to traffic safety? And most importantly, is it making a difference in advancing safe mobility for all?

Join leaders from two early-adopter Vision Zero cities – Boston and Los Angeles – and from the national Vision Zero Network to learn more about on-the-ground experiences. This session will also include hands-on participation, as you’ll have the chance to sketch out what your community’s road to zero could look like.
