In my humble opinion, a multitude of traffic safety issues including tired trucker tragedies and seat back failure fatalities could be aggressively and comprehensively addressed with the granting of our AnnaLeah & Mary Vision Zero Petition Requests to President Obama and Secretary Foxx:
- Set a National Vision Zero Goal.
- Establish a White House Vision Zero Task Force.
- Sign a Vision Zero Executive Order which would pave the way for a Vision Zero Rulemaking Policy.
So WHY is it that this country does not have a National Vision Zero Goal? And don’t tell me that DOT embraces Toward Zero Deaths and that that is the same as what I am calling for!!!
See Lou Lombardo’s latest email:
Dear Care for Crash Victims Community Members:
Crash victims demand safety
1..Media educates the public. Watch video
Progressive legislators provides pressure. See letters
- Reporters investigate.
- Auto Safety Advocates Build the Case
It is now up to citizens to voice their views as voters and consumers.
The tragedies will continue until the pressure builds to ends these senseless deaths and injuries.
Please read the news report by our local reporter, Brie Handgraaf, about our recent delivery of 20,000+ Vision Zero Petitions to Washington: Family continues fight for trucking safety. The story is also told by Care 2: Mom Continues to Fight for Truck Safety After Daughters’ Tragic Death.
If you have not already signed the petition, it will remain open until a Vision Zero Rulemaking Policy is adopted. So sign here: Save Lives Not Dollars: Urge DOT to Adopt a Vision Zero Policy. Then share the petition with someone who has not yet heard about it.
