Vision Zero Report

New York City has recently published the annual report for year four of the Vision Zero project.  Vision Zero is a series of regulations, infrastructure improvements, and awareness campaigns aimed at reducing the number of pedestrian fatalities in the city.  This project was enacted in 2014, and has resulted in a 28 percent reduction in traffic fatalities, and a 45 percent decline in pedestrian fatalities.  The declines in fatalities are in contrast to current national trends of increasing fatalities.

The Vision Zero Project credits its success to the integration of multiple strategies to combat traffic related fatalities.  The use of existing polices and new techniques are what the Vision Zero Project credits for its success.  By promoting cross agency and multi-agency work Vision Zero stands as an example of how to effectively govern and get results.
