Implementing Vision Zero for Safer Driving

Cities like Brooklyn and San Francisco are trending in today’s latest news for their efforts in making their roads a safer place to travel by adopting a multi-national road traffic safety project. More than 30,000 people are killed in traffic accidents every year and 1 million people are seriously injured. The multi-national road traffic safety project, Vision Zero was first adapted in the country of Sweden with the purpose to produce a highway system with no fatalities or serious injuries in road traffic.  i-drive-safely-at-night

Vision Zero is based upon four principles: Ethics, Responsibility, Safety and Mechanisms of Change. Not only have Brooklyn and San Francisco taken steps toward ending pedestrian deaths due to car collisions once and for all, but Boston and Portland are also implementing similar principles.

According to an article published by San Francisco Examiner, bicycle coalitions and other San Francisco groups provide pedestrian and bicycle safety training content to Transportation Network Company drivers, such as Uber and Lyft. Before the new efforts of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, transportation companies, such as these were responsible for providing their own training content to ensure driver and pedestrian training. Now, coalitions are coming together to provide additional training for transportation companies to make saving lives the highest priority for their city.
