New way to enVision Zero
Friday, March 10, 2017 by Elizabeth Pagano
Yesterday, the Austin Transportation Department may have found a way to make routine gripes about Austin’s traffic safety a part of the recently approved Vision Zero Action Plan. The Vision Zero Input Map is an interactive tool launched by the city to make it easier for Austinites to share places where streets need to be safer. Though there is a way to report for various modes of travel, the city is encouraging pedestrian concerns over the next couple of weeks and will use the data to help craft the Pedestrian Safety Action Plan – just one component of the Vision Zero program.
