In Wake of Rising Death Toll, Time for Action on Vision Zero

SAN DIEGO (February 17, 2016) ---

In the wake of two tragic traffic fatalities last week, the transportation advocacy group Circulate San Diego is calling on City Leaders to dedicate funds in next year's budget to save lives.

A beloved community leader of Mission Beach and an 85-year old man from Mira Mesa lost their lives last week in preventable tragedies. Manuta Gardner was hit as a result of road rage and the gentleman was hit while crossing the street.

These deaths are not the first this year and come when at least three others were seriously injured while walking or bicycling in the same time period. Further, they come on the heels of 2015 where 54 people lost their lives in traffic crashes, and where the number of serious injuries among people walking rose 42% from the previous year.

Circulate San Diego and a diverse coalition of 20 organizations have been promoting a program for the last year called Vision Zero that would end these deaths to San Diego.

The concept behind Vision Zero is to reach zero traffic deaths through safer street design, education, and enforcement. The program has been successful in other U.S. and European cities.
