Philadelphia’s first Vision Zero legislation passed City Council on Thursday, just one week after the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia’s Vision Zero Conference.

The legislation, championed by Councilmembers Cindy Bass and Mark Squilla, amends the city’s Traffic Code by imposing a $5 fee onto all motor vehicle registrations. The additional fee will go into roadway improvements.

“Every part of our City has been impacted by senseless traffic fatalities,” said Councilwoman Bass after the bill initially passed through committee on December 2. “In light of all the traffic deaths and injuries, devoting more resources to slowing cars down will protect all those who use our public thoroughfares—motorists, pedestrians, cyclists, and mass transit riders.”

MoBikeFed comment: Vision Zero--the movement to eliminate fatalities and serious injuries on our roads--is moving forward across the U.S. and the world.
