Vision Zero: The City of Philadelphia’s Program to Eliminate Traffic Deaths on Philadelphia Streets by 2030 (and how you can get involved)

Jeannette Brugger, the City’s Pedestrian & Bicycle Coordinator at the Managing Director’s Office of Transportation, Infrastructure, & Sustainability (oTIS) will be attending the November 13th 12th Police District Community Workshop to talk about upcoming paving projects and discuss possible safety improvements. There are several upcoming PennDOT paving projects on area streets and oTIS staff will discuss ideas for safety improvements on Grays Avenue and Lindbergh Boulevard. These streets are Vision Zero High Injury Network Streets (

According to Brugger, “Every year, there are over 10,000 reported crashes in Philadelphia, taking the lives of nearly 100 people. Grays Avenue and Lindbergh Boulevard have a higher rate for serious traffic crashes than average Philadelphia streets and have a high amount of people who are seriously injured or killed. The primary goal of these projects will be to make Grays and Lindbergh safer for neighbors walking to transit, walking and biking to and from the recreation center, Bartram’s Garden, and the Heinz Refuge, and traveling by foot, bike, or car. I hope to meet many neighbors and talk about your roadway safety concerns in Southwest Philadelphia.”

    The city has done everything it possibly could to cause as many crashes as possible and ticket as many safe drivers as possible, while increasing congestion. Doubling down on all this is sheer madness. For REAL safety, visit the National Motorists Association and see the Streets That Work program for urban areas. Do not believe the Vision Zero hype, as it does not work!

    Another way to legally take money from safe drivers, while causing crashes, and needless delays.

    Talk to the national Motorists Association for stuff that really works,not a bunch of nonsense.
