Hidden Safety Problems Keep Denver Kids From Walking and Biking (Vision Zero Watch)

One of the key tenets of Vision Zero is that we need to be more data-driven in responding to the public health crisis we have on the roads. Denver’s Vision Zero Action Plan, for instance, includes “improve data and be transparent” as one of their five themes and “processes and data” as one of their three working groups. A data-driven approach to improving safety makes perfect sense, especially given how traffic engineers have long prioritized capacity and efficiency over safety.
