Media Advisory: Delivery of Vision Zero Petition to DC & Release of our Vision Zero Petition Book

Plans are being finalized for our delivery of almost 20,000 Vision Zero Petitions to Washington on March 3 and 4. Details are available in this Karth Vision Zero Media Advisory.

We have published a 544 page book to take with us to Washington to show government officials what we are talking about when we are asking for Vision Zero: Towards Zero Crash Deaths & Serious Injuries. The book contains all of the Vision Zero Petition signatures along with the specific details of our requests for:

  1. A National Vision Zero Goal.
  2. A White House Vision Zero Task Force.
  3. A Vision Zero Executive Order.
  4. DOT Vision Zero Rulemaking Policy (and specifically applied to the truck underride rule).

Here is a PDF: Vision Zero Petition Book Feb 2016.

The book can be purchased here.
