Vision Zero: Reducing Serious Injuries and Fatalities on Salinas Streets

What is Vision Zero?

Salinas Vision Zero is the City’s strategy to will build safety into our streets, protecting the people who travel about the City every day. The Salinas Vision Zero Salinas policy acknowledges that traffic deaths are not inevitable but are preventable.

Why do we need it? Many Salinas residents have lost their lives while traveling on Salinas’ streets. These deaths and serious injuries are unacceptable and the City of Salinas is committed to preventing further loss of life.

What does it mean? The City adopted Vision Zero as a policy on February 11, 2020, committing to building safer streets, educate the public on traffic safety, enforce traffic laws, and to develop a Salinas Vision Zero Action Plan that save lives. The goal of the Salinas Vision Zero Action Plan is to create a culture that prioritizes traffic safety and to ensure that traffic related accidents on our city streets don’t result in serious injuries or death.
