VISION ZERO,
Creating a Safer Atlanta for All

Learn more about the Vision Zero Action Plan and get involved!

 

Atlanta's Vision Zero Action Plan started in October 2022, and for the next 12 months, we will focus on how we can

make Atlanta a safer city!

The Vision Zero Action Plan is an initiative of the Atlanta Department of Transportation and City of Atlanta with support and funding from the Atlanta Regional Commission. The Vision Zero Action Plan will develop specific strategies for making streets safer, such as design improvements and policy measures. The overarching goal is to eliminate all traffic fatalities and serious injuries in the city.

This action plan will build on City of Atlanta’s strong foundation and planning efforts of recent years, such as the One Atlanta Strategic Transportation Plan, the Action Plan for Safer Streets, and the Vision Zero Interim Action Plan.
