Vision Zero in
Vision Zero SF: Because a mistake on the road
should never result in serious injury or death.
Every year in San Francisco, about 30 people lose
their lives and over 200 more are seriously injured
while traveling on city streets. These deaths and
injuries are unacceptable and preventable, and San
Francisco is committed to stopping further loss of life.
The City and County of San Francisco adopted Vision
Zero as a policy in 2014, committing to build better and
safer streets, educate the public on traffic safety, enforce
traffic laws and adopt policy changes that save lives.
The goal is to create a culture that prioritizes traffic
safety and to ensure that mistakes on our roadways
don’t result in serious injuries or death. The result of this
collaborative, citywide effort will be safer, more livable
streets as we work to eliminate traffic fatalities by 2024.

education, enforcement, evaluation and policy.
