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. Earlier this year, San Francisco released a 2019 Vision Zero Action Strategy. It 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.  

San Francisco has aimed to reduce speeds, redesign roadways and start education campaigns to improve safety.
