Read these comments on our Vision Zero Petition from survivors, bereaved families, lawyers, truck drivers, engineers, and safety advocates:
Vision zero in road safety is an imperative public health goal, and one that is now fully realistic to embark upon.
I’m signing because as a Texan, my state has shamefully averaged 3,500 annual road deaths in the past 20 years. Based on historical data, I seriously doubt the Texas state legislature or state DOT has the skill or the desire to improve in the area of fatality reduction on Texas roads. For the safety of all road-users, the USA needs the help of a national Vision Zero strategy.
I am signing this petition as a widow and now single mother of three children because a tired or distracted truck driver killed my husband while he was inspecting a bridge repair in his closed-off work zone. The pain of losing a loved one to these preventable crashes is beyond words. Losing a father at such a young age will leave emotional scars for decades, and our society doesn’t fully understand —or offer appropriate resources for coping.
I am signing in honor of my late wife Tamara Mills-Hadley whom lost her life because a phoney underride guard law was passed that was not meant to save any lives, instead it just legalized the guards already on the road in order to save money and garner campaign donations. We also lost a family friend to unsafe trucks. No more!
I’m signing because no one should have to suffer a sudden, unexpected loss of a loved one due to a preventable crash.
WE NEED A VISION ZERO GOAL AND SIGNS…NOW TO SAVE LIVES!!!
I’m signing because the loss of one human life in the pursuit of profit is wrong! Safety first!
I’m signing because tragedies like this one can be avoided.
I’m signing for Susan Slattery!
Because business shoots for zero defects. Because my wife is dead and two sons seriously injured, one permanently, when an overworked trucker fell asleep at the wheel.
