Commit to help Austin prevent traffic crashes. Take the pledge online, record a short introductory video or take a photo and post it on your Facebook and/or Twitter using #VisionZeroHero. Make sure you nominate a friend or family member to also become a Vision Zero Hero, and tag them in your post.
If you want to post a video, state your name, explain why you want to be a Vision Zero Hero and what you pledge to do to make our streets a little safer, and nominate someone else to join you. Here is a sample script, or check out Mayor Steve Adler's message, but feel free to get creative:
“Hey y’all! My name is ____, and I’m proud to announce that I’ve been nominated as a Vision Zero Hero for Austin, Texas! I’m excited to help Austin reduce all traffic-related deaths and injuries to zero. I took the pledge online and I promise to drive slower on neighborhood streets to keep families safe (or add your own pledge here). I nominate ___________ to be a Vision Zero Hero, too!”
Thanks again for your invaluable and—might we say—heroic efforts to increase knowledge and awareness about Vision Zero! Let us know if you have any questions or ideas.
