Vision Zero Conditions Assessment Study

Vision Zero strives to eliminate all fatalities and serious injuries that occur during the everyday business of transportation. A Vision Zero approach assumes that human users (like drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists) will make mistakes as they move from place to place and that the cost of these mistakes should not be death or serious injury.

A Vision Zero approach looks at how existing tools—like roadway policy, roadway technologies, and speed limits—shape human user behavior. By using these tools in new ways, we can produce roadways that are designed to anticipate human error and mitigate its consequences.
