Message from Mayor Lee
Dear fellow San Franciscans,
We know that any death on our streets is unacceptable, and that is why
San Francisco is committed to eliminating traffic deaths on our streets
by 2024 as part of Vision Zero SF Vision Zero SF is our City’s commitment
to prioritize safe streets and ensure all road users – whether you walk,
bike, drive or ride the bus – are safe.
Working together with the Board of Supervisors, numerous City Agencies
and Departments along with our community and neighborhood leaders,
we can end traffic fatalities on our streets. This year, we will complete
safety treatments along at least 13 miles of the high injury street network
in San Francisco. San Francisco is one of the most pedestrian and
bicycle-friendly cities in America. Let's work together to make it the
safest city in America for those activities as well.
San Francisco is committed to building better and safer streets, educating
the public on traffic safety, enforcing traffic laws, and prioritizing
resources to implement effective initiatives that save lives. By working
to equitably protect our most vulnerable road users, we strive to create
a better culture for our residents, workers and visitors to prioritize traffic
safety and reduce collisions that happen on our streets.
Every day over a million people travel to work, school, to shop or socialize
with family and friends in San Francisco. We are a growing City with more
people on our streets than ever before. That means every one of us can
help save lives by slowing down and being more mindful as we use our
I have fully endorsed this Action Strategy, which reflects my belief that
we can, and we must, provide safety for all road users. Safety is our top
priority, and we are committed to working together to achieve Vision Zero
in San Francisco.
