Adopt Vision Zero in Caldwell County
How safe is Caldwell County?
Since 2010, 98 people have died on streets and roads in Caldwell County, while another 392 have suffered life-altering, serious injuries– 490 families whose lives have been impacted forever by traffic violence.
Caldwell 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 Caldwell 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 Caldwell County – County Judge Haden and our County Commissioners – to prioritize our safety by committing to end traffic deaths and serious injuries across Caldwell County.
