Vision Zero Scorecard

The Vision Zero Action Plan was released in 2014 and outlined 63 separate initiatives that the Mayor's Office and a number of City Agencies are undertaking to reduce death and serious injury on our streets. Since then, the Vision Zero Task Force has added an additional 88 new initiatives (40 new initiatives were introduced in 2015, 22 were added in 2016 and 26 in 2017 ) for a total of 151 initiatives.

The status of each initiative is listed below and City Agencies continue to make progress towards completion. The list below is up to date as of 2/28/17.
