Gather Data & Analyze Crashes

Vision Zero is a data-driven approach. Gathering, analyzing, and sharing both formal data on injury crashes and community input to understand traffic safety priorities is fundamental to Vision Zero success. It is recommended that at least 5 years of serious injury and fatal crash data be analyzed to determine problem areas.
