Vision Zero

More than five miles of bike lanes were installed in 2017.

As of 2018 the District has a total of 17 HAWK signals, more than any other city on the East Coast.

Vision Zero DC is an all-hands-on-deck approach to transportation safety. We are all in this together. By the year 2024, Washington, DC will eliminate fatalities and serious injuries to travelers of our transportation system through more effective use of data, education, enforcement, and engineering

Deaths and serious injuries are not inevitable. They are preventable.

From 2016 to 2017,  pedestrian serious injuries decreased from 122 to 119.

Everyone needs safe streets. Fatalities and serious injuries affect everyone who travels in the District. 

In 2017, 16 stations were added to help grow the ever-expanding Capital Bikeshare fleet and continue the District's commitment to be one of the most bike-friendly cities in the country.

From 2016 to 2018, the District has filled 123 blocks of sidewalk gaps and expanded sidewalk maintenance, surpassing the goal of 40. 

OUR GOAL

By the year 2024, Washington, DC will reach zero fatalities and serious injuries to travelers of our transportation system through more effective use of data, education, enforcement,

and engineering.

Education & Enforcement
Engineering & Infrastructure
Data Collection

A systematic data and information-driven process informs Vision Zero strategies.  The process identifies and prioritizes interventions with the greatest potential to eliminate fatalities and serious injuries. 

Careful data analysis identifies 

specific locations that require new interventions and safe street designs. 

Greater enforcement and education protects our most vulnerable travelers. Infrastructure alone will not reduce fatalities and serious injuries to zero.
