Vision Zero Initiatives Start in Florida
VOLUSIA COUNTY, FL- Operation Vision Zero is taking off in Volusia County, according to HOMETOWNNEWSVOLUSIA.COM. Law enforcement in other counties, including Seminole, Brevard, and Orange, are also working to save people from deadly traffic incidents.*
Vision Zero is a traffic safety program that is geared toward preventing tragic crashes and pedestrian incidents. Under Vision Zero, the goal is to completely eliminate these deadly crashes, and each traffic collision is viewed as a failure. The philosophy is that all of these crashes can be prevented.
The month of March has seen the second-highest number of pedestrian crashes in all of the listed counties except for Volusia, where March is the deadliest month for these wrecks. There will be strong Vision Zero education efforts throughout the region through the end of the month.
Police have pointed out that the state has the worst record in the nation when it comes to both pedestrian and cyclist collisions.
As part of the initiative, several locations where numerous crashes occur have been identified. By identifying places where more collisions take place, the program can work to find solutions that will have the biggest impact.
While the United States had more fatal pedestrian crashes last year than at any point in the last three decades, the city of Oslo, Norway, reported that not one pedestrian or cyclist died on its roads last year. The city is an example that Vision Zero efforts do work, and these tragic fatalities truly are preventable.
