SF’s Vision Zero Turns Two. Now What?

Two years into San Francisco’s 10-year plan to eliminate traffic deaths and severe injuries, signs of progress abound. Yet, so much work remains undone, requiring advocates dedicated to safe, livable streets to speak up.

Thanks to our 10,000-plus members, your SF Bicycle Coalition is positioned to elevate the voices of everyday people committed to creating a more bikeable city. Through your time and resources invested in safe streets advocacy, you are making it possible for San Francisco to take tangible strides towards providing the streets that people deserve.

Among other improvements, we know that your advocacy made possible:

  • The complete streets redesigns underway or nearly so on Masonic Avenue, Polk Street and Second Street;
  • The reduction of private auto traffic resulting from turn restrictions implemented under the Safer Market Street Project; and
  • The pending redesigns of Turk, Seventh and Eighth Streets, including physically-protected bike lanes.

There’s still so much more to do, though, and that’s where you can weigh in on how to improve the lives of everyone who bikes and walks in San Francisco by taking this survey today.

How Do We Reach Vision Zero?

As San Francisco’s two-year Vision Zero Action Strategy winds down, this is your chance to tell the City what more they need to do to achieve the goal of eliminating traffic deaths. Over the next two months, City agencies are working to update their action strategy, as informed by your feedback.

By speaking up previously, you helped deliver safety improvements enjoyed by thousands of people in our city every day. Now is the time to share your vision for our streets again and improve our city for years to come.
