San Francisco's Vision Zero project continues to move forward, with a goal of making city streets safer.  

Most recently, improvements have been made to Market, Brannan and Fifth streets to better protect pedestrians and bicyclists.

San Francisco's "Vision Zero" pedestrian safety plan is part of a nationwide program that aims to reduce traffic deaths to zero by 2024.

To date, more than 30 communities have signed up across the country. San Francisco released a 2019 Vision Zero Action Strategy, which prioritizes the strategies that make the biggest difference in safety.

MTC has also addressed the issue regionally through its Complete Streets program to make urban roadways more bike and pedestrian friendly.
