Is Vision Zero Reducing Traffic Fatalities in San Francisco?

June 12, 2021
SHARE POST:

In 2020, there were 30 traffic-related fatalities. So, no, Vision Zero is, unfortunately, NOT reducing traffic fatalities in San Francisco. Having 30 lives lost to traffic accidents is unacceptable, and each of these deaths represents the loss of a loved one or a friend. These 2020 traffic fatalities are a 3% increase from 2019’s fatality rate, and 11% above the yearly average since the implementation of Vision Zero in 2014. The fatalities were caused by 28 fatal crashes, which is the exact number of fatal crashes in 2019. Despite not being on track to achieve its main goal of zero serious injuries and traffic deaths by 2024, the city is still committed to realizing the Vision Zero goal

What is The Goal of Vision Zero?

Vision Zero believes that decreasing traffic deaths in the Golden City streets could only be realized via a safe systems approach, which incorporates livability and safety into the streets more effectively. This approach entails designing more forgiving and efficient road systems that consider human vulnerability and errors. If successful, this safe transportation system will help safeguard people from severe injuries and death.
