Headlines are quick hits from media outlets from Missouri and around the world. Follow the headline link for the full story. The source of this headline says:

The Association of Pedestrian and Bicycle Professionals (APBP) believes that traffic crashes are preventable and should not be tolerated. APBP supports “Vision Zero” strategies to eliminate traffic fatalities and injuries and other policies that emphasize actions to improve safety for people walking and biking. Fatal and severe crashes can be systematically eliminated through a focus on engineering solutions supported by education, outreach, and other programs.

APBP endorses the work of the Vision Zero Network and commends cities that have joined the network. These “early adopter” cities go far beyond simply adopting a Vision Zero policy; they are working to build political will to dramatically improve safety for all users of public rights-of-way.
