City Visions: Keeping our eyes on the road towards Vision Zero

Oct 7, 2019

  

What will it take to make San Francisco streets safer for pedestrians and cyclists? In 2014, the City adopted Vision Zero, an ambitious plan to end all traffic deaths and severe injuries by 2024. 

After initial declines, traffic fatalities are on the rise. Why hasn’t Vision Zero resulted in safer streets?  What is being done to turn things around?  Host Joseph Pace speaks with guests working to make Vision Zero a success, as well as advocates for pedestrian and bicycle safety on City Visions, here on local public radio KALW San Francisco.
