Yesterday, Circulate San Diego released our latest report at a press conference with Mayor Todd Gloria.
Our report “Hope for Vision Zero,” details the progress the City of San Diego has made in the last five years to prevent traffic fatalities and serious injuries.
Mayor Gloria joined Circulate and other advocates to highlight the report’s release, and to recommit the City of San Diego to ending traffic deaths.
A number of outlets reported on our release, including NBC 7 San Diego and Streetsblog California. This kind of publicity is key to educating drivers and decisionmakers to prioritize safety on our streets.
Our report “Hope for Vision Zero” includes traffic collision data from between 2013 and 2020 in the City of San Diego. Between 2013 and 2018, traffic collisions were on the rise. Starting in 2019, and again in 2020, traffic collisions began to decline.
The modest reduction in traffic collisions are a reason to hope for Vision Zero. To meet San Diego’s ambitious goal for zero traffic fatalities, we must keep up our momentum.
