Street Transportation Department staff provided an update to the community about the comprehensive Road Safety Action Plan during the City Council Transportation, Infrastructure and Planning Subcommittee meeting on June 15, 2022. Watch a video recording of the subcommittee meeting (YouTube) or read the subcommittee report (PDF).
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 that will further the city's current efforts and provide a framework and key strategies for safety enhancements citywide.
On January 25, 2022, Phoenix City Council
approved to incorporate the goals of Vision Zero into the Plan.
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."
