We are on a mission to change the relationship between drivers and vulnerable users of the road by re-humanizing cyclists and creating a movement of mutual responsibility and respect to make roads safer together.
In the face of a worsening safety crisis onour roads, community members across the country applauded the introduction on July 27th, 2021 of a bicameral Congressional Resolution calling for the first national goal of Zero Traffic Deaths in the U.S. — or Vision Zero. Introduced by Senator Richard Blumenthal and Representative Jan Schakowsky, the Resolution recognizes the urgency of addressing the leading cause of death amongst youth in this country and calls for stepping up effective and equitable actions to prevent traffic deaths and severe injuries. The need is acute, given an estimated 42,060 traffic deaths in 2020 — an 8% increase over the prior year, despite far less travel due to the pandemic, a staggering 24% increase in the traffic death rate (data from the National Safety Council).
Please join It Could Be Me, Vision Zero and Families for Safe Streets on this effort by contacting your Senators and representatives.
