Vision Zero is a data-driven approach to reducing transportation related injuries and saving lives. This approach will educate the community on local traffic safety issues and enable the City of Eugene to prioritize resources based on evidence of the greatest need and impact. Vision Zero holds the goal of working towards the only acceptable number of traffic deaths and serious injuries = Zero.
In November of 2015, the Eugene City Council adopted a Vision Zero Resolution that set as official policy the vision zero goal that no loss of life or serious injury on Eugene’s transportation system is acceptable.
Between September 2016 and September 2017, the Eugene Vision Zero Task Force developed an Action Plan. On March 29, 2019, Administrative Order No. 58-18-04 was signed into effect by the City Manager, formally adopting the Vision Zero Action Plan.
The Eugene Vision Zero 3yr Progress Report (2016-2018) illustrates actions that have been taken based on the approved Action Plan. The 3-Year Report also highlights priority areas and actions that will be taken in the upcoming year.
The Vision Zero Action Plan identifies Eugene’s most dangerous streets and intersections. The High Crash Network is a compilation of the top 15 most dangerous streets for each travel mode. The Vision Zero Action Plan also includes a breakdown of this data by mode, and identifies high crash streets for people driving, high crash streets for people biking, and high crash streets for people walking.
Fatal and serious injury crashes for people walking, biking, and driving were mapped individually to assess which streets were most dangerous.
Use this online tool to identify and report transportation hazards and dangerous traffic behaviors that could lead to fatalities or life changing injuries on our streets. This app complements the Vision Zero Action Plan adopted by our community to reduce fatalities or life changing injuries on our streets. The information you report will be used by the City’s Transportation and Public Works staff to assist in identifying patterns, problems and prioritizing work.
