Vision Zero Sonoma County

The Sonoma County Transportation Authority (SCTA) and Sonoma County Department of Health Services (DHS) are collaborating on the Vision Zero Sonoma County project to create a healthier, more sustainable community for all residents in Sonoma County.

Whether venturing out to the coast, biking to work, or going for a neighborhood stroll, every resident and visitor deserves to be safe while moving around our County. Even one death on our streets is one too many, but between 2016 and 2020, there were 176 traffic fatalities and 924 crashes that resulted in severe injury.

Vision Zero is a strategy to eliminate all traffic fatalities and severe injuries, while increasing safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all.

For too long, we’ve considered traffic deaths and severe injuries to be inevitable side effects of modern life. While often referred to as “accidents,” the reality is that we can prevent these tragedies by taking a proactive, preventative approach that prioritizes traffic safety as a public health issue.

Local Road Safety Plans

Many jurisdictions in Sonoma County are working on Local Road Safety Plans (LRSP). These plans will be similar to the Vision Zero Action Plan and all the plans will be aligned in their goals and objectives. The main difference is that the Vision Zero Action Plan will be a countywide plan and the LRSPs will focus on particular jurisdictions. The Vision Zero Action Plan will lay out a bold vision of how Sonoma County can eliminate traffic fatalities and serious injuries by 2030. The LRSPs will drill down into the details of what that will look like for the individual jurisdictions.
