What is Vision Zero?

Vision Zero is a comprehensive strategy built around the guiding principle that even one death on our transportation system is unacceptable. Developed in Sweden in 1997, this strategy has proven successful in multiple communities across the world. 

Miami-Dade County’s Vision Zero initiative:

  • Started in 2018 with the publication of the County's first Vision Zero Plan by the Miami-Dade Transportation Planning Organization.
  • In 2021, Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava, and the County Commission, formally established the Vision Zero Program.
  • In 2021, the Vision Zero Framework Plan was developed. 
Why Vision Zero?
Each year, there are more than 300 fatalities on Miami-Dade County roads, and hundreds more are severely injured. For too long, these tragic events were thought of as inevitable. As such, achieving Vision Zero requires a paradigm shift to embrace the thought that crashes should not result in deaths or serious injuries, and we all share responsibility in achieving our vision.

Only together we can achieve Vision Zero. Take the first step by sharing your experience on Miami-Dade County’s roads.

Take the survey.
