Together, we can achieve zero fatalities on our roadways because every person in our community matters.
Vision Zero establishes that the loss of even one life or serious injury on our roads is unacceptable. Through Vision Zero, the community shares the responsibility for ensuring the safety of people in our community. The responsibility for roadway safety is shared between those who design the road and those who use the road. Every person in our community matters, and we can achieve Vision Zero together.
The recent number of people walking and biking being killed in San Antonio has also brought to light the need for action. The current crash picture illustrates that the problem is citywide and requires a multi-faceted approach. The City of San Antonio led by the Transportation & Capital Improvements (TCI) along with partner agencies is committed to enhancing safety in San Antonio. Recent efforts have emphasized our commitment to the community through strengthened programs and implementation. We believe that the key to success in achieving Vision Zero is a combined approach using the five essential elements for a safe transportation system: Education, Encouragement, Engineering, Enforcement and Evaluation.
Communicate the importance of safety for all on our roadways, whether a person is driving, bicycling, walking or riding.
Encourage all to practice safety and follow all traffic laws.
Construct improvements to enhance safety and accessibility along crosswalks, walkways, and bikeways.
Enforce traffic safety and continue to support safety initiatives such as Click It or Ticket It, Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving, and Distracted Driving.
Evaluate traffic safety efforts and implement improvements as needed.
Take the Vision Zero Safety Pledge!
