Do Your Part To Stay Safe
You can join the Vision Zero movement and make our transportation network safer by trying some of these quick and easy steps:
- Reducing your speed is an easy way to increase safety. Try going just five miles per hour slower – it could mean the difference between life or death.
- Taking an extra second to look for bicyclists, pedestrians, and vehicles ensures everyone can pass through intersections safely.
- Knowing your options for a safe ride home helps ensure you and your loved ones have the perfect ending to a fun time.
- Keeping your #HornsUp by putting your phones down and avoiding distractions in the car.
Interested in doing more? Request a Vision Zero Yard Sign to encourage safer driving in your community, and share a copy of the Vision Zero brochure for yourself, your family and your neighbors. You can also explore convenient and affordable commute alternatives by visiting our new GetThereATX website.
