Councilmember Evan Glass Hosting Virtual Conference to Discuss Road Safety and Vision Zero

This Saturday from 10AM to 12PM, Montgomery County Councilmember Evan Glass is hosting a virtual conference discussing road safety and Montgomery County’s implementation of “Vision Zero” to reduce roadway injuries and fatalities.

Congressman Anthony Brown, U.S. Representative for Maryland’s 4th Congressional District and a member of the U.S. House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, will deliver keynote remarks this Saturday. Families and students impacted by traffic incidents, as well as other county and state elected officials, will also be joining the virtual conference.

“More individuals were killed on our roads in 2020 than in the previous year. We must make our streets safer for pedestrians, bicyclists, drivers — everyone,” said Councilmember Evan Glass, a member of the Montgomery County Council’s Transportation & Environment Committee. “Improving our roadway infrastructure is also a matter of social justice, given that a majority of the pedestrian fatalities occur within communities of color.”

The conference will also feature two ‘breakout’ discussions: one focused on Safe Routes to School, keeping young people and families safe as they walk to school and around neighborhoods. The second ‘breakout’ discussion will be focused on Designing Safe Streets, namely reporting unsafe/broken roadway features (signals, crosswalks, signs, etc) and understanding the processes towards creating more safe streets.
