City Prioritizing Street and Waterway Safety
CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – Today the City of Corpus Christi kicked off Vision Zero, a strategy to eliminate all traffic fatalities and severe injuries on our roadways and waterways. City leadership, employees, and community members will be working together so you can walk, bike, drive and boat safely.
First implemented in Sweden in the 1990s, Vision Zero has proved successful across Europe and is gaining momentum in American cities. Vision Zero is the ethical belief everyone has the right to move safely in their communities, and system designers and policy makers share the responsibility to ensure safe systems for travel.
The City is committed to decreasing crash statistics by endorsing Vision Zero and increasing safe, healthy, equitable mobility for cities, commuters and tourists who live, work and play here. Corpus Christi is a leader in becoming the fourth city in the State to pursue these efforts along with San Antonio, Austin, and Laredo.
