Advocacy Alert: City Council vote on Vision Zero

Over the last year, PedNet Coalition has been leading a campaign for the City of Columbia to adopt Vision Zero.

Vision Zero is a policy and data-driven strategy to eliminate traffic deaths and serious injuries. Cities across the country are adopting Vision Zero because it is a proven approach to saving lives.

At the next City Council meeting, Council members will consider and vote on a Vision Zero policy.

We need you!

  1. Contact your City Council member to ask them to vote in favor of Vision Zero.
  2. Join us at the City Council meeting to show your support for safe streets for everyone.

This vote is a huge opportunity for Columbia to take a major step towards making our streets safe.

  • You are two times more likely to be seriously injured or killed in a crash in Columbia than New York City, Seattle, or San Francisco.
  • Our crashes disproportionately injure and kill children, older people, people of color, and low-income families.
  • People walking or biking are involved in only 3% of the traffic crashes in Columbia, but account for 23% of the people killed on our city streets.
