Mayor Sylvester Turner signed an executive order in August to adopt Vision Zero Houston,
a plan to end traffic deaths and serious injuries caused by crashes on Houston roads by 2030. Vision Zero Houston is a comprehensive and holistic planning approach to safer streets that enhances the quality of life for all Houstonians.
The plan will transform how the city designs roads and sidewalks and will prioritize engineering, education, enforcement, equity, and evaluation. For more information, see the Mayor's Officepress release or visit Houston’s Vision Zero page.
