Vision Zero is the long-term goal of zero traffic fatalities and serious injuries. Those who have embraced Vision Zero recognize that striving towards zero traffic fatalities and serious injuries is the only ethical goal that makes sense for our citizens. In 2006, there were 8,246 people injured and killed in collisions on Edmonton streets. The City responded by creating the first municipal Office of Traffic Safety in North America that year. In spite of the population growth since then, in 2016 there were 3,396 people injured or killed, a decrease of 58.8%. The City of Edmonton has been working hard to reduce fatalities and serious injuries on our roads. But the numbers are still far too high. Get behind Vision Zero and Volunteer for the 7th Annual Run Walk Ride! We all want our loved ones to get home safely.
