Speaker expertise

Co-Founder of Families for Safe Streets

Since being first introduced in the U.S., the Swedish-born traffic safety philosophy has shifted and grown for an American audience. When cities across the country introduced the idea ten years ago, many ignored Swedish-precepts focused on engineering first and enforcement as a last resort. Today, with racial justice in mind, advocates are de-emphasizing or eliminating enforcement from the program and instead pushing for a bigger focus on redesigned streets. And automated enforcements has succeeded in some cities but failed in most others. Join us for a retrospective discussion on Vision Zero victories, failures, missteps, and miracles, and most importantly, answers to the question: where will, and should, Vision Zero be ten years from now?
