The City’s New ‘Vision Zero’ Plan Aims To Eliminate Traffic Deaths In Austin


This year, Austin has seen more traffic deaths than any other year on record, with 92 people having died on the roadways in 2015 so far.

Last November, the Austin City Council commissioned the Vision Zero Task Force to find solutions for the perennial problem of traffic deaths, and Tuesday the task force outlined a draft of its proposals to the Austin City Council.

The task force’s ultimate goal is to eliminate traffic deaths and serious injuries on Austin roads.
