To Zero in Ten Years
An average of 95 people suffered life-altering injuries or were killed in traffic crashes each year on streets in Minneapolis from 2007 to 2016. That is unacceptable and preventable.
On September 20, 2017, the Minneapolis City Council adopted a Vision Zero resolution committing to the goal of zero traffic deaths and severe injuries on City streets by 2027.
Achieving the goal of safe streets for everyone will require significant effort and resources. We will put equity and engagement at the forefront for our Vision Zero work while utilizing data and best practices. We will report regularly on our progress toward Vision Zero.
Vision Zero is an international movement for safe streets. Minneapolis is one of more than 30 Vision Zero cities in the United States. You can learn about Vision Zero efforts around the country from the Vision Zero Network.
