VISION ZERO PANEL

In 2015, Seattle pledged that by 2030, there would be no injuries to non-drivers caused by collisions on city streets. This is Vision Zero, which a section of the city's Department of Transportation implements. This is SDOT's page for Vision Zero.

A panel of advocates, journalists and city employees will discuss Vision Zero at 1pm on 10/30, at the Center for Bicycle Repair, 1019 S Jackson St.
