Breaking Down Mediocre Report Card on Denver’s Bid to Lower Traffic Deaths (Vision Zero Watch)

The Denver Streets Partnership has issued a report card for 2018 in regard to Vision Zero, an action plan launched by Mayor Michael Hancock that aims to eliminate traffic deaths in the Mile High City by 2030. And while there are some bright spots, the overall mark of “C” is no one’s idea of a triumph.

“We’d like to see progress that isn’t variable,” says Piep van Heuven, who’s both co-chair of the partnership and policy director of Bicycle Colorado. “Denver’s made very significant progress in a number of areas, but it’s important to measure year-to-year to see where we’re meeting expectations and where we haven’t gotten traction yet.”
