Vision Zero Philadelphia 2015
On December 3, 2015, the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia and numerous partners held Philadelphia’s first Vision Zero Conference, which brought together experts in the planning, health, advocacy and transportation fields to figure out how to make Philadelphia safer for all road users.
Vision Zero is a policy that seeks to reduce all traffic deaths in a given area to zero in a given amount of time, and we believe many citywide organizations — City Hall, the Philadelphia Police Department, and hospitals, among others — have an important stake in this issue. Even Mayor-Elect Jim Kenney came to speak and show his support for Vision Zero:
The conference was heavily-covered in Philadelphia media, and you can read about it Philly Voice, Philadelphia Inquirer, Philly.com, Generocity, Plan Philly, The Philadelphia Business Journal and CBS 3.
Experts came from all over North American to speak at Vision Zero Philadelphia, and we’ve listed all speakers and provided the slides of those who made presentations below.
