Expanding Vision Zero to Small and Medium-Sized Communities

When: Tuesday, November 16, 2021 -- 2:00 - 3:30 PM ET

This webinar is led by the ITE Transportation Safety Council, Vision Zero Sub-committee. 

Webinar Description:

Many large cities and metro areas have embraced Vision Zero to effectively transform their transportation system to ensure safe systems in their communities. Recently there has been increasingly more cities embracing Vision Zero, including smaller communities. However, the development and implementation steps are not common knowledge. This webinar will help address some of the questions related to safety planning, infrastructure, and the development and implementation of a Vision Zero Plan.


Vision Zero is a multidisciplinary approach; however, the webinar will focus on implementing Vision Zero principally from a planning and infrastructure perspective. An overview of safety planning for smaller communities, how infrastructure elements such as roundabouts can be a critical treatment to achieve Vision Zero, and steps to develop a Vision Zero Plan for a smaller community will be the focus of the presentations.

Learning Objectives:
Attendees of this webinar will be able to:

  • Recognize the fundamentals of safety planning for smaller communities and how planning approaches can help a community to realize Vision Zero.
  • Examine one of the more effective infrastructure safety countermeasures and its application to reducing crashes and crash severities to support a Vision Zero initiative.
  • Describe the steps involved in the development and implementation of a Vision Zero Plan in smaller communities.
