Vision Zero is an international movement that provides a framework for reducing traffic deaths and life-changing injuries to zero, while increasing safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all. It addresses all collisions, whether people travel by truck, car, motorcycle, bike, wheelchair, or foot. In November 2019, the Alameda City Council adopted a resolution establishing Vision Zero as the City’s guiding principle for transportation planning, design, and maintenance. In early 2021, the City of Alameda will complete a Vision Zero Action Plan that includes specific actions and policy changes to increase street safety in Alameda.
NEW: On April 22, 2020, the City Council approved a package of street design updates as required by the Alameda Vision Zero policy. To read the staff report and resolution, click HERE.
