Adopt Vision Zero in Bexar County
How safe is Bexar County?
Since 2010, 1,797 people have died on streets and roads in Bexar County, while another 10,255 have suffered life-altering, serious injuries– 12,022 families whose lives have been impacted forever by traffic violence.
Bexar County must join the growing safety movement in the region and the rest of Texas. All children, all families deserve access to a safe transportation system. Already, the cities of Austin, Houston, San Antonio, Laredo, and Fort Worth have chosen to save lives by adopting Vision Zero, and TxDOT has adopted a statewide Road to Zero goal, approach, and increased funding for safety. We need Vision Zero in Bexar County. We need meaningful goals and we need the county to figure out how it can bring these numbers down.
We are asking the leadership of Bexar County – County Judge Wolff and our County Commissioners – to prioritize our safety by committing to end traffic deaths and serious injuries across Bexar County.
