Vision Zero San Diego Petition

18 signatures

Dear Mayor Faulconer and City Councilmembers,

Thank you for making San Diego a Vision Zero city! That is the first step in stopping the senseless, preventable deaths and injuries that plague our streets. Each year, thousands of men, women and children are killed or seriously injured in San Diego as a result of traffic violence. That's why your decision to become a Vision Zero is so important.

We all know it’s going to take a lot of hard work and a significant financial commitment to reduce traffic injuries and eventually eliminate all traffic fatalities. The time to start that hard work is now.

I am urging you to allocate enough money in San Diego’s budget to fund the necessary street improvements, public awareness and education programs, and law enforcement activity that will put an end to dangerous behavior and save lives. I know we can’t improve every street, but let’s fix the most dangerous ones, and let’s start now.

As you decide what goes into the budget, I am asking you to make street safety and saving lives a top priority. The cost, in both dollars and lost lives is too great.

I urge you to work with your colleagues and City staff to implement Vision Zero and start saving lives in San Diego this year. 

Will you sign?

    I was walking north on the left crosswalk of Elm St. and 5th Ave. and I was ran over by a driver making a left turn onto Elm St. I am a Bankers Hill resident and I commute by walking to my work in downtown. Every day I walk, I have at least one driver (usually making a left turn) who doesn’t give me my right of way as I start on the crosswalk. I feel very passionate about Vision Zero because pedestrian safety in the downtown, Bankers Hill, and Hill Crest area has become a matter of self preservation for me, my husband, and my two dogs.

    Please consider the amount of children, youth and older adults that depend on transit and have to cross streets to use transit. Most bus trips require a minimum of 1 transfer. Often the transfer is across a major intersection. There are certain vulnerabilities at these intersections that include right turns and multitude of other factors. Many of the intersections controls (lights) are prioritized and synchronized based on vehicular traffic. The pedestrian often has to wait over 2 minutes at these intersections. The pedestrian controls predominately do not have count down timers. This program Vision Zero is integral to maintaining safe neighborhoods and communities.


    Please vote for Vision Zero.
