About Vision Zero Texas

Sadly, Texas has been averaging almost 12 traffic fatalities a day,
which is why we work for

Change at the state and local level through the adoption of

  • Vision Zero policies in every city, county and MPO all across Texas.
  • Safe speed policies
  • Comprehensive safety measures
  • Systemic changes to how we approach transportation planning and funding, and
  • Hosting the Texas Vision Zero Summit

Safe Streets for Texans (SS4T)

Safe Streets for Texans is a grant funded safety education training program to teach city, county and MPO staff about the Vision Zero / Safe Systems approach to improving transportation safety and planning. Through this program we are partnering with MPO’s across the state to engage city and county staff and leaders to provide in person trainings on the Vision Zero / Safe Systems approach, and to help these communities apply for Safe Streets and Roads for All planning or implementation grants.


The victims and families of victims of traffic violence who formed Central Texas Families for Safe Streets (CTFFS) which serves as a resource for individuals and families who have been affected through loss and suffering from traffic violence involving a motor vehicle. CTFSS’s mission is to promote alternative and safe transportation options through policy and legislation, advocacy, community outreach and empowerment.

Together with CTFSS, and others who are working to end traffic violence, we come together each year on the 3rd Sunday of November for the Texas World Day of Remembrance for the Victims of Traffic Violence. A solemn and somber day on which we reflect and remember all those killed by traffic violence on Texas roadways.
