Vision Zero Conference Jan 23

Vision Zero Conference Jan 23

2020 was marked by another unfortunate milestone with 18 pedestrians and cyclists killed in traffic incidents in Montgomery County. It is clear that the county and state must do more to make walking and biking safer in all of our communities. 

Join Montgomery County Councilmember At-Large Evan Glass and Congressman Anthony Brown Saturday, January 23 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. for a virtual Vision Zero conference to discuss road safety, the county’s efforts to implement Vision Zero and how residents can best advocate for safer streets. The event is co-sponsored by the MCCPTA, CASA de Maryland, Washington Area Bicyclists Association, Action Committee for Transit, Sierra Club Montgomery County, and the Coalition for Smarter Growth.   

These traffic fatalities are preventable, and we as a county must do more to make our streets and roads safer for all.

Vision Zero and particularly Safe Walking to and from Schools are essential for the safety of our residents and students. CIP projects for larger traffic and walking improvements can take time. A “Spot” Safety CIP for School Walking and Street Crossings sometimes can be quicker in collaboration with School Board. I did learn more today from the Presentation!
