What is the problem?
Each year in Seattle, 20 people are killed in traffic collisions and another 150 are seriously injured. Despite being involved in only 5 percent of the collisions, nearly 50% of the traffic deaths are people walking and biking. Safety is also a top reason people don’t walk and bike as much as they would like to.
What is the solution and opportunity (the 2017 priority)?
Vision Zero is a Seattle Department of Transportation program to eliminate serious and fatal injuries by 2030. While it has been able to make progress on projects like the Rainer Ave safety project, it is significantly underfunded. The mayor and city council can, and should decide to increase funding for the Vision Zero program in this year’s budget process (click for a timeline).
