First introduced in Sweden in 1997 as a countrywide response to increasing traffic fatalities and serious injuries, the initiative makes the safety and health of humans the top priority in road network design.

The Mayor and Council resolution “endorses Vision Zero as a comprehensive and holistic approach” to achieving the goal. It calls for guidelines that “identify a combination of equitable engineering, enforcement, education and evaluation, along with associated funding needed for the city to reach the goal toward zero deaths and serious injuries by 2030.”
