Vision Zero

FOR GENERAL RELAEASE

Hi folks,

My name is Kevin Johnson and I work for the Los Angeles Department of Transportation. My focus is helping Los Angeles implement the Vision Zero initiative, Mayor Eric Garcetti’s goal to achieve zero traffic deaths by 2025. In order to reach this Vision Zero goal, we must work closely with Angelenos to better develop shared roles and responsibilities. You’ve been nominated as someone who is closely involved in the issues of traffic safety in your community. As part of our initial planning efforts, we want to hear from you!
We’ve crunched the numbers and know where the most severe collisions are happening. Now, we’d like to hear from community leaders like yourself about your experiences and discuss a range of strategies. The strategies will range from engineering safety projects to neighborhood-focused education efforts. These meetings will help guide those decisions!
We’ve scheduled the meetings throughout the city, and we’d love for you to participate. Please feel free to attend the meeting that works best for your schedule. The full list of meetings is below. Some background information on the Vision Zero effort is attached as well. Please RSVP by clicking on this link so we have a better understanding of attendance numbers.
Lastly, while you have been identified as someone who is uniquely qualified to help provide input on this effort, this is an open meeting. Please feel free to invite your neighbors or colleagues who may be interested in participating. Thanks for your time, and we’ll see you soon!
