About the Initiative

Vision Zero is a holistic strategy that seeks to eliminate avoidable loss of life by promoting health, safety, and mobility equity.

The City of Toledo, in partnership with the Toledo Metropolitan Area Council of Governments and the Ohio Department of Transportation, will work to reduce roadway fatalities to zero by the year 2031.

Pilot Projects

Whitechapel Rd. and Nevada St. have pilot projects happening now to test how effective different traffic-calming measures are at reducing car speeds. Five additional pilot projects are planned through the end of 2023. If these pilots show favorable results, permanent installations may begin next year.

To Protect My Neighbors

In Toledo, an average of 32 traffic fatalities cost residents their lives each year. Getting to zero will require infrastructure improvements, education, enforcement, and data-driven policy, but most importantly it will require your support.
