Designing Streets That Save Lives

Nearly 100 cities across the country have implemented Vision Zero—a data-driven initiative to track and eliminate traffic deaths. Yet pedestrian deaths continue to climb, recently hitting a 30-year high in the U.S. Learn how some of the nation's largest cities are taking a new approach using large-scale, quick-build infrastructural changes to streets that protect their most vulnerable residents as they get around town. This panel, moderated by Curbed urbanism editor Alissa Walker will hear from some of today's most notable transit advocates and policy makers.
