ITS America National Vision Zero Policy

Safer Streets For All Users

Far too many vulnerable road users—including people walking and cycling—die on U.S. roads. Motor vehicle crashes killed an estimated 42,060 Americans in 2020, the worst death toll in 14 years. Historically, these deaths have been accepted as an inevitable consequence of modern life. Vision Zero is an initiative founded on the tenet that crashes are preventable, and thus deaths and serious injuries in traffic can be eliminated through a comprehensive program of engineering, education, and enforcement.
