In the average year, 70 Austinites are killed in traffic crashes. For each person who dies, eight more are seriously injured. By designing our streets for safety, and encouraging everyone to make choices that prevent crashes, the City of Austin is working to prevent needless tragedies. We need your help.
In January 2017, the Austin Transportation Department and the Austin Police Department launched a new, coordinated Vision Zero education and enforcement effort called Vision Zero in Action. Read the announcement for more information about the initiative. See below to learn how you can help eliminate traffic fatalities and serious injuries on Austin streets.

Safety: No matter how you get around, we’re all in it together.
Pay attention: Operating a vehicle is a full-time job.
Don’t drive, bike, or cross streets on foot while intoxicated. Arrange a safe ride home.
When driving, look carefully for people walking and biking – and yield to them.
Slow down. Speed kills.
Always stop at stop signs and red lights.
When walking or biking, behave predictably and legally on the street.
