What is Vision Zero?
Vision Zero is an integrated set of policies, plans and programs based on the philosophy that fatal collisions are unacceptable and often preventable.
On December 10, 2019, Mountain View City Council unanimously adopted a Vision Zero Policy to eliminate fatal traffic collisions in Mountain View by 2030.
Mountain View's Vision Zero approach is based on collision analysis, industry best practices, as well as input from a community meeting, online survey, and the Bicycle/Pedestrian Advisory Committee.
The City is currently developing an integrated Vision Zero Action Plan and Local Road Safety Plan. This Plan is focused on eliminating fatal traffic crashes that affect all transportation modes including motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists and transit riders. Through the action plan, we will analyze historic crash data, compile proven countermeasure, identify and prioritize projects, and recommend safety projects for implementation. In addition to engineering/infrastructure improvements, the Vision Zero approach encompasses the 7E's: engineering, education, encouragement, enforcement and emergency response, engagement, equity, and evaluation.
On March 24th, 2022 the City of Mountain View held a virtual community meeting on the integrated Vision Zero Action Plan and Local Road Safety. To view the presentation and community input please click here for video of the event. You can also click below for the presentation slides or video.
