TAMPA, FL.- The City of Tampa is unveiling its Vision Zero Action plan as part of our effort to eliminate all roadway deaths and life-altering injuries while increasing safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all.
The City of Tampa’s Vision Zero Action Plan is our road map to reach our goal of zero severe injuries or deaths on our roads.
On average, 44 people die and another 289 suffer life-altering injuries on roads in Tampa each year, according to an evaluation of FDOT crash data. The City of Tampa is committed to ending this cycle.
The Vision Zero Action Plan was developed through a data-driven, collaborative approach that included understanding the community’s concerns and priorities, evaluating crash data, identifying trends and strategizing with the Vision Zero Task Force. The Plan contains strategies with measurable action items focused on the next five years that will be continuously tracked, evaluated, and updated.
“Transportation and road safety has been a top priority for my administration as we continue Transforming Tampa’s Tomorrow,” Mayor Jane Castor said. “The Vision Zero Action plan is just another step in the right direction. I know that together, we can create safer streets for all and create a lasting impact for decades to come.”
