Cyclists champion Vision Zero
Metro - 02/27/2017
Many cities and countries that have instituted Vision Zero policies (from New York City to the Netherlands) have seen dramatic decreases in traffic deaths. New York City had fewer traffic deaths last year than ever before. If the U.S. had instituted Vision Zero when the Netherlands did in the late 1990s, we could have avoided 20,000 traffic deaths per year, as noted in a recent report by Professor Peter Furth of Northeastern University in Boston.
