Let’s work together as communities to reduce all kinds of crash deaths–including pedestrian traffic fatalities. Let’s create a network of Vision Zero Community Action Groups across this nation. With shared vision and resources.
I firmly believe that, in order to move as a nation Toward a Vision of Zero Crash Deaths, it will take take a commitment to a National Vision Zero Goal and a coordinated endeavor of government, private industry, workers of every skill imaginable, and informed citizens. Anything short of this will be disjointed and less effective, which translates into — not simply unmet project goals but — people dying. It is not an impossible dream but it will require sacrifice and will be well worth the effort.
See what is being done in Bangladesh, through a community project, to reduce crash fatalities: Community project puts a dent in crash fatality numbers.
