Vision Zero: Safer Streets. Safer You.

Vision Zero is a nationwide initiative that many cities and counties have adopted to reach zero traffic deaths or severe injuries, committing to a fundamental shift in how cities approach traffic safety. Vision Zero is a strategy to eliminate traffic fatalities and severe injuries among all road users, and to ensure safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all.

Harris County Vision Zero will be an integrated part of future transportation plans and projects to reach the overarching goal of zero traffic fatalities and severe injuries in Harris County by 2030.

Vision Zero reshapes the way we think about and achieve safety on our roads, considering safe streets, safe speeds, safe vehicles, and safe people.

Harris County’s Vision Zero evergreen campaign will be updated and implemented continuously to achieve this goal. The City of Houston is also taking part in Vision Zero and shares this goal to achieve zero traffic fatalities and severe injuries by 2030.
