On Thursday, January 26 2017, Mayor Eric Garcetti and the Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) announce the release of the city’s first Vision Zero Action Plan and Safety Study. The Vision Zero Action Plan outlines the City’s blueprint to reduce fatalities by 20 percent by the end of 2017 and eliminate traffic deaths by 2025.
The Department of Transportation has also published a technical companion, called the Vision Zero Safety Study. The study expands on the data that was used to develop the High-Injury Network. Each traffic fatality has a story and the Safety Study helps to provide the additional information needed to come up with an effective solution.
