Adopt Vision Zero in Williamson County
How safe is Williamson County?
Since 2010, 357 people have died on streets and roads in Williamson County, while another 2,134 have suffered life-altering, serious injuries– 2,491 families whose lives have been impacted forever by traffic violence.
Williamson 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 Williamson 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 Williamson County – County Judge Gravell and our County Commissioners – to prioritize our safety by committing to end traffic deaths and serious injuries across Williamson County.
