Project ​Overview

The Street Transportation Department's mission is to “provide for the safe, efficient and convenient movement of people and goods within the city, and support citywide infrastructure projects to improve the quality of life in Phoenix."  

Understanding the importance of safety as a core function of the department, and due to recent data trending in a negative direction, Phoenix is investing in a comprehensive Road Safety Action Plan (RSAP) that will further the city's current efforts and provide a framework and key strategies for safety enhancem​ents citywide. ​

On January 25, 2022, Phoenix City Council approved to incorporate the goals of Vision Zero into the RSAP.  

Vision Zero is built around a core philosophy that traffic-related deaths and serious injuries are preventable. The Vision Zero Network recognizes cities that take action towards adopting this approach to road safety as "Vision Zero Communities."​

What will the Road Safety Action Plan do?

  • ​Conduct a comprehensive evaluation of data and current conditions
  • Establish a clear vision and mission to unite residents, stakeholders and staff across multiple city departments with a common goal
  • Determine a High Injury Network (HIN) that identifies problem locations and helps determine solutions and prioritization
  • Provide inclusive public engagement in the planning process
  • Create new and modernize existing safety evaluation tools​
  • Provide a system of recommendations that respond to data and public input, and connect to the 4 E's of Traffic Safety: Evaluation, Engineering, Enforcement, Education

The Four E's of Traffic Safety

The Street Transportation Department has been proactively investing in the Four E's of Traffic Safety: Evaluation, Engineering, Enforcement and Education. The RSAP will further integrate the 4 E's and provide a road map for the city to hone a "safety first" proactive approach in reducing roadway related fatalities and injuries.

  • Evaluation is benchmarking efforts to measure effectiveness of implemented initiatives
  • Engineering identifies tools and resources needed to successfully address roadway safety items that include roadway design, traffic engineering, maintenance, operation and planning
  • Enforcement is ensuring users of the roadway are following the rules
  • Education is conducting communication campaigns and initiatives that promote and teach safe roadway user behavior including people driving, riding transit, walking and bicycling​​​​​​​​
