Vision Zero Action Plan 2024 Update

Vision Zero is not just our plan to end traffic deaths and serious injuries on city streets by 2030. It is a culture of care and dignity for everyone who uses Seattle’s streets.  

The only way we can achieve this vision is through action that prioritizes safe travel as our primary goal. This means shifting our culture to center safety, staying grounded in equity, and addressing safety concerns on our streets, both proactively and responsively. 

The Vision Zero Action Plan 2024 Update serves as a near-term plan for how we will advance our roadway safety goals over the next three years, with over 20 broad strategies and over 80 actions that establish clear steps forward. The plan builds upon the recommendations included in the Vision Zero Top-to-Bottom Review and establishes a broad approach to safety that infuses Vision Zero into all our work throughout the department. It also organizes our safety actions around the multi-layered Safe System Approach to reduce the likelihood of crashes and the severity when crashes do occur. 

To jumpstart progress on our goal of eliminating lives lost and seriously injured on our streets, we have established a list of specific and measurable targets for how we will advance the three-year action list in 2024. As we address these actions, we’ll continually evaluate progress on our key metrics and provide updates on our progress.
