Vision Zero

The City of Charlotte is renewing its commitment to safer streets in 2018 with the creation of Vision Zero, an action plan designed to reduce crashes and eliminate traffic-related deaths and severe injuries by 2030. Why? Because even one traffic-related death is too many. 

Join us at a community event to tell us about your experiences on Charlotte’s streets and help inform the Vision Zero action plan. Visit to learn more. 

Can’t make it to an event? You can still help. Use this interactive map to mark areas that make you feel safe and unsafe as a pedestrian, cyclist, transit user or motorist.
