Vision Zero, By the Numbers
Vision Zero uses data to target improvements that will reduce crashes, save lives, and address inequities experienced on the street related to crashes.
An average of 11 people were killed and 84 experienced life-altering injuries on streets in Minneapolis each year between 2007 and 2015. These injuries and deaths are disproportionately suffered by people walking and bicycling, in neighborhoods with lower incomes, and by Native Americans.
In Minneapolis, crashes and injuries are concentrated on a small percentage of streets, often ones that have a high demand for walking, biking, transit, and driving. Many crash concentration corridors are on four-lane undivided streets without dedicated turn-lanes. Streets with higher speed limits generally have a larger share of crashes and severe crashes.
