City of Boston releases Vision Zero Action Plan

Today Mayor Walsh and the City of Boston released the Vision Zero Action Plan, and the accompanying website, as part of their ongoing commitment to eliminating traffic fatalities in Boston. This plan represents the culmination of years of work by the City, the Bike Union and othersĀ partners to draw attention to and take action on eliminating traffic fatalities.

The Bike Union would like to thank Mayor Walsh and the City for their leadership, and we look forward to continue to serve on the Vision Zero Task Force.Screen Shot 2015-12-09 at 5.06.00 PM

Check out the plan and website, including an interactive crash map that displays pedestrian, cyclists and motor vehicle crashes in the city over the past 15 months. Data collection and analysis like this will be integral in identifying and fixing dangerous corridors and intersections.

We’re particularly excited about a pilot Neighborhood Slow Streets program in the Talbot-Norfolk Triangle in Dorchester and the Stonybrook neighborhood in Jamaica Plain. Reducing vehicle speeds is a major step in saving lives and making Boston more bike friendly!
