The City announces Vision Zero Boston

On March 25th, Mayor Walsh announced that the City of Boston will adopt Vision Zero, based on the premise that traffic crashes, injuries, and fatalities can be prevented by adopting effective policies and systematic evaluation, enforcement, engineering, education, and community engagement. By adopting Vision Zero, the City of Boston joins cities such as New York, San Francisco, and Chicago, which have committed to making traffic safety a priority. Toward that end, Mayor Walsh has convened a Vision Zero Task Force to develop an action plan for a comprehensive and coordinated strategy to eliminate traffic fatalities and injuries in Boston.

This is very significant development for our Age-Friendly Boston initiative, as it will help older residents feel safe and secure on the sidewalks and streets of Boston.
