The County of Los Angeles is seeking public input on its recently released Vision Zero Action Plan. The plan is a joint product of the County’s Public Health and Public Works Departments.
Vision Zero, as many Streetsblog readers know, is traffic street strategy that seeks to prevent all traffic deaths. Vision Zero began in Sweden and spread to places all over the world. Vision Zero policies have been adopted by numerous municipalities around the U.S., including the city of Los Angeles.
County Vision Zero efforts grew out of a 2017 motion by Supervisor Hilda Solis. L.A. County’s Vision Zero goal is to eliminate all traffic-related fatalities on unincorporated county roadways by 2035. The action plan focuses on what the county will implement over the next five years.
