Vision Zero in Montgomery County

Vision Zero in Montgomery County

The County has just released its Vision Zero Two Year Action Plan.  According to the Plan, “the status quo on our roads in Montgomery County and across the United States is unacceptable. The United States is an outlier for traffic fatalities compared to other wealthy countries. On average, more than 35 people lost their lives and 400 were severely injured on roads in Montgomery County, Maryland, annually between 2012 and 2016. These are not accidents and they are not an inevitable ‘cost of doing business’ in the modern world. Behind every traffic safety statistic is a real person whose life is forever changed in one moment. No one in our community should have to grieve the loss of a loved one as the result of a traffic crash. That is why Montgomery County is committed to Vision Zero.”
