Vision Zero Seattle’s plan to end traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2030
Mayor Murray announces Seattle's Vision Zero efforts in 2015
Vision Zero is our plan to end traffic deaths and serious injuries on Seattle's streets by 2030
Traffic collisions aren't accidents - they're preventable through smarter street design, targeted enforcement, and thoughtful public engagement. Together, we can make Seattle a safe city for all travelers.

- We're kind of into data. Read our Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Analysis (BPSA), a deep dive into pedestrian and bicycle collisions from 2007 to 2014. The results will help us proactively identify locations and prioritize safety improvements so we can prevent future crashes.
- Speed limits have changed. In late 2016, speed limits on all residential (non-arterial) streets changed from 25 to 20 MPH. Downtown streets and many arterials around downtown changed from 30 to 25 MPH. Slower speeds are key to achieving Vision Zero.
