Vision Zero in Action
Two-Year Action Items
The action items outlined in the following pages are designed to protect the million people moving around San
Francisco every day, moving us closer to Vision Zero. The focus is on high-impact improvements where they’re
Traffic safety is a complex problem, so it is being addressed through a multi-pronged approach. Vision Zero
action items fall into five main categories: engineering, enforcement, education, evaluation and policy.
Multiple City departments will collaborate to achieve this ambitious agenda over the next two years. To ensure
efficiency and teamwork, lead agencies will manage each action item, with other agencies participating and
providing guidance in their area of expertise.
The goal is to create measurable progress by the end of 2016, saving lives and reducing injury rates.
The City has identified a range of funding sources to support implementation of the action items supporting
Vision Zero. Funding will come from the recently enacted Proposition A as well as Propositions B and K1; the State
Transportation Improvement Program – Transportation Enhancement (STIP-TE) program; the Office of Traffic Safety
(OTS); the Active Transportation Program (ATP); and other regional, state and federal funding sources.
The Funding Working Group will administer and secure funding for projects, programs and activities that directly
support the Vision Zero policy.
Prop A (2014): $500 million bond that will invest in street safety projects and transit efficiency and reliability improvements
Prop B (2005): $208 million primarily for street re-surfacing and maintenance, but also capital improvements, pedestrian
and disabled access enhancements, bicycle upgrades, and other street-related physical improvements
Prop K (2003): A half-cent local sales tax for transportation ranging from signals to streetcars, bicycles to boulevards,
and pedestrian safety improvements to paving.
