Denver Commits to Vision Zero
Denver released its Vision Zero plan on Friday of this week, pledging to end traffic fatalities by 2030. Jesse Paul reports on the Vision Zero agenda for the city, writing that the city has set "an ambitious goal that includes addressing high-risk corridors through speed reductions, better lighting, median alterations and promoting a culture of safety."
"Vision Zero has been in the works for about two years and has included a host of stakeholders, including WalkDenver, BikeDenver, Inter-Neighborhood Cooperation and the Mayor’s pedestrian and bicycle advisory committees," writes Paul. As an initial step in the process, the city has identified the areas of the city most in need of safety upgrades. In total, however, the city's Vision Zero initiative lays out 70 action items.
