Adopt Vision Zero in Hays County
How safe is Hays County?
Since 2010, 236 people have died on streets and roads in Hays County, while another 1,301 have suffered life-altering, serious injuries– 1,537 families whose lives have been impacted forever by traffic violence.
Hays 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 Hays 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 Hays County – County Judge Becerra and our County Commissioners – to prioritize our safety by committing to end traffic deaths and serious injuries across Hays County.
