Vision Zero Neighborhood Symposium

Vision Zero is working towards zero traffic deaths in San Diego, acknowledging that no loss of life is acceptable. 

The Vision Zero Neighborhood Symposium is organized by a coalition of San Diego supporters for safer streets. The event will bring together residents from San Diego's diverse neighborhoods and leaders in traffic safety, law enforcement, street design, and public health to discuss the pressing issue of saving lives.

- Learn what San Diego is doing to reach the goal of zero traffic deaths,

- Hear from community leaders how to successfully advocate for safer streets,
