The Plan

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.

Our Approach

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.

Education

Communicate the importance of safety for all on our roadways, whether a person is driving, bicycling, walking or riding.

Encouragement

Encourage all to practice safety and follow all traffic laws.

Engineering

Construct improvements to enhance safety and accessibility along crosswalks, walkways, and bikeways.

Enforcement

Enforce traffic safety and continue to support safety initiatives such as Click It or Ticket It, Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving, and Distracted Driving.

Evaluation

Evaluate traffic safety efforts and implement improvements as needed.

Your Role

Take the Vision Zero Safety Pledge!

Are you a safe driver?

Introducing San Antonio's Safest Driver Contest, a city-wide competition that will allow drivers to prove it and win $10,000 in the process.

San Antonio's Safest Driver Contest begins Monday, June 11, 2018, and runs through September 3, 2018. The contest is open to residents, 18 years old and older, who drive in San Antonio from Bexar, Comal, Kendall, and Guadalupe counties. Those who are deemed the safest driver, least distracted driver and the safest military drivers can win the cash prizes.

Here's how the contest works:

  1. DOWNLOAD
    Just by downloading the free app and participating you could be randomly selected to win $2,000.
  2. DRIVE
    Follow the rules of the road and be safe. No need to interact with the app while you drive.
  3. WIN
    Based on your driving performance; whether it's best improvement or overall best driver, get the kudos you deserve.

San Antonio's Safest Driver app is a free smartphone app developed in partnership with the City of San Antonio's Vision Zero Initiative and Cambridge Mobile Telematics. San Antonio-based USAA is the contest sponsor. The app provides you helpful feedback on your driving based upon five metrics:

  • Speed
  • Acceleration
  • Braking
  • Cornering
  • Phone Distraction

For more information, official rules, and to download the app, go to sasafestdriver.com.
