Cambridge Adopts Vision Zero and Complete Streets!

On March 21, 2016, the Cambridge City Council unanimously passed resolutions put forth by the City Manager to formally adopt Vision Zero and Complete Streets policies, showing that the City of Cambridge is committed to achieving these goals.

Vision Zero calls for the elimination of fatalities and serious injuries resulting from traffic crashes, and emphasizes that they can and should be prevented. The City of Cambridge is the 17th city in the U.S. to commit to a Vision Zero policy.

Complete Streets are designed and operated to enable safe access for all users – regardless of age, ability, or mode of transportation. Complete Streets make it safe and easy for everyone to travel between work, school, shops, and other destinations, whether they choose to walk, bicycle, drive, or take transit.

To read the full text of the resolutions, see Appendix items 2.10 and 2.11 on the City Council Agenda from March 21.
