Horrible Week for Vision Zero Casts Shadow over San Francisco (Vision Zero Watch)

Monday’s incident marked the eighth serious traffic collision in the past week. Three pedestrians were struck, including one fatally, on Tuesday evening and another four collisions occurred on Friday. SFMTA Director of Transportation Ed Reiskin even issued a statement on Saturday calling the latter “a tragic day on our streets.”

“Our Vision Zero goal means that we never treat these crashes as mere accidents,” Reiskin said.  “Rather, they are a wakeup call to recommit ourselves to ending traffic fatalities on our streets.”
