Adopt Vision Zero in Guadalupe County
How safe is Guadalupe County?
Since 2010, 166 people have died on streets and roads in Guadalupe County, while another 1,070 have suffered life-altering, serious injuries– 1,236 families whose lives have been impacted forever by traffic violence.
Guadalupe 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 Guadalupe 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 Guadalupe County – County Judge Kutscher and our County Commissioners – to prioritize our safety by committing to end traffic deaths and serious injuries across Guadalupe County.
