End the Silence on Traffic Violence - a campaign to make the epidemic of traffic violence an issue in the 2020 presidential campaign - endtrafficviolence.org

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:

Traffic violence is an epidemic which kills 40,000 people and injures 3 million every year in the United States.

Families for Safe Streets demands that every U.S. presidential candidate end the silence on traffic violence and put forward a plan for safe, livable, and vibrant communities where Americans have safe and dignified transportation options, and can travel freely without harm. We all deserve to grow up and live life to the fullest without fear that we or someone we love will be killed in a preventable traffic crash.

Americans deserve a national leader who will put an end to the senseless carnage on our roads and confront the deadly epidemic of traffic violence.

MoBikeFed comment: Other countries that have made significant progress in reducing traffic fatalities and serious injuries have had significant public support and high profile support from public officials.

This has been a missing piece in the U.S.

The Vision Zero Network and others working towards Vision Zero across the U.S. want to change that, by making the issue of traffic fatalities and injuries part of the national conversation in the U.S.
