How San Antonio Is Working Toward Vision Zero
Mike Frisbie shares the progress of the city of San Antonio toward its Vision Zero goals, as established in September 2015.
Already, the city has begun implementation of its Vision Zero goals with the following actions:
Program enhancements have included $1 million toward pedestrian safety improvements for school zone upgrades and pavement markings in 2015, plus an additional $1 million for school zones in 2016. $15 million was allocated in 2016 to add new sidewalks, $10 million more than the typical budget amount of $5 million. Innovative tools such as overhead pedestrian flashing signals have been installed city wide, and Z-Crossings on streets such as Broadway, Culebra, and Commerce are also being constructed to further enhance pedestrian safety.
