Vision Zero

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

Join over 40 local people in taking the Vision Zero Pledge.

What is Vision Zero?

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.

The project is built upon three foundational principles:

  1. The development of systems that will drive data informed planning
  2. Collective/coordinated Vision Zero planning across municipalities
  3. Community engagement driven planning and engagement

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.
