Watch the New Vision Zero Video then Urge Mayor Faulconer to Complete and Activate the Vision Zero Strategic Plan

vz_vid.jpg

One year ago, San Diego City Councilmembers committed to the goal of zero traffic deaths in San Diego by 2025 by unanimously adopting a Vision Zero Resolution

One year later, there is more talk about Vision Zero than action. One year is too long to wait to save lives.

We initiated an email letter campaign this past week to allow concerned San Diego residents the ability to contact the Mayor and their Councilmember.

 I have lived in Chula Vista for over 25 years.  During that time I have ridden road bikes and mountain bikes around Chula Vista and beyond.  My husband, who commutes by bike everyday to National City, and I like to ride our mountain bikes from our home near the Hilltop area to points east through Bonita Valley.  We also ride our road bikes down to the amazing Bayshore Bikeway and on to Coronado.  I believe the BayShore Bikeway is a treasure and is one of the best and most scenic rides in California.

Chula Vista Elementary School District director shares how a culture of walking has taken off at the District.

Soon, however, more employees were walking the neighborhood, noting that life and work are more enjoy­able when you literally put your best foot forward.
