Vision Zero is a traffic safety initiative that takes a systems-based approach with the foundational understanding that no traffic-related loss of life is acceptable.
Vision Zero recognizes that people will make mistakes, so the road system and related policies should be designed to ensure those inevitable mistakes do not result in severe injuries or fatalities. This means that system designers and policymakers are expected to improve the roadway environment, policies (such as speed management), and other related systems to lessen the severity of crashes.

The City of Alexandria developed a comprehensive Vision Zero Action Plan in 2017 to achieve its goal of eliminating all traffic fatalities and serious injuries by 2028. Alexandria strives to provide a traffic system that prioritizes safe transportation choices for all of our residents, employees and visitors. Learn about Vision Zero in the City of Alexandria here.
