Vision Zero is a strategy for eliminating all traffic fatalities and serious injuries while increasing safe, healthy equitable mobility for all users. First implemented in Sweden in the 1990s, Vision Zero is gaining momentum around the world, including many communities within the U.S.
To meet their ambitious goal of eliminating all traffic fatalities and serious injuries by 2035, EP worked with the Town of Lexington to create a Vision Zero Action Plan that outlines strategies for eliminating traffic-related deaths and serious injuries within Town limits and identifies top-priority safety-related projects for future funding opportunities. The strategies included in the plan are diverse and multidisciplinary, including infrastructure projects, policy and enforcement recommendations, public education tactics, and data collection strategies.
The final plan was approved by the Town’s Board of Selectmen in August and is available to view here!
