Boulder has joined cities across the country and the world that are working toward this goal. Reaching it requires safe street design, enforcement, strong community partnerships— and you.
Vision Zero was adopted in 2014 as part of the city's Transportation Master Plan and uses a data-driven approach to increasing the safety of Boulder's streets. Safety has always been a top priority of the city. By tracking the places where collisions and close calls occur most often — and the behaviors and situations that lead to them — staff can make targeted improvements to street design, enforcement and outreach efforts in places where they are needed the most.
Vision Zero employs both a location-specific and a systemwide approach that is targeted, reactive and proactive through a transformative set of actions that prioritize travel safety for everyone.
