Vision Zero Pittsburgh hub launched; Seeks to minimize deadly crashes

Pittsburgh’s Vision Zero page is now active. Vision Zero is an initiative to cut down on the number of vehicle crashes and the frequency of pedestrians and cyclists who are hit.

The goal is to reduce traffic fatalities to zero, under the believe that fatal crashes can be prevented.

The initiative was adopted in Pittsburgh after being passed by city council in March.

“We have an excellent team at the Department of Mobility and Infrastructure. They’re working to systematically reduce traffic fatalities to zero, but we can’t do it without the help and support of all road-users. Roadway safety, like most things, is a shared responsibility and I believe that together we can make Pittsburgh the safest City in America,” said Mayor Ed Gainey.

A group was established to focus on projects involving fatal-crash response and detailing where serious and fatal crashes happened.
