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.
- Monday, December 19, 2016
- Meeting starts at 7pm
- Columbia City Hall
We need you!
- Contact your City Council member to ask them to vote in favor of Vision Zero.
- 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.

- 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.
