The war over Vision Zero and road diets is only getting started (War on Cars Watch)

According to SmartGrowthAmerica, as of last summer some 1,400 jurisdictions around the country had adopted Complete Streets as their official transportation policy. The jurisdictions range from states and state transportation departments to small rural towns. Collectively they’ve spent countless millions of dollars on everything from lane restriping and intersection narrowing to road diets and dedicated bicycle trails. Cities also have implemented programs such as Vision ZeroGreat StreetsLivable StreetsSafe Routes to Schools, and others. While they differ in detail they share the ultimate goal of incentivizing (or, less charitably, forcing) people out of their cars and onto transit, bicycles and e-bikes, scooters, and their own two feet.
