Hawai‘i also has a Vision Zero goal – no fatalities in traffic. But what would the steps look like to actually get there? Can we learn from a major city that made it happen?
“Jersey City is about to end its safest year on record, bucking a deadly national trend. And local leaders are intent on pushing forward with more improvements that will eventually encompass more of the city and region.”
“The idea is to focus on more politically palatable locations, show what’s possible, and then expand outward from there. So far, the strategy seems to be working: not only have traffic fatalities fallen, but cycling ridership is way up.”
