About this session

A major difference between Vision Zero and the traditional approach to traffic safety efforts is the former’s recognition that managing speed is critical to make real progress, especially for ensuring safety for people walking and biking. Yet, many have overlooked this critical component or even erected barriers to effective strategies. Fortunately, that’s changing as more people -- practitioners, policymakers, advocates -- recognize that we do have the ability to prioritize speed for safety. In most cases, it’s more likely a matter of political will than practical know-how. Join us to hear from those who are leading the way by proving we can manage speed for safety.
