What is Vision Zero?
Vision Zero efforts by cities like Austin attempt to reduce the number of tragic traffic deaths. We know the devastating effects that car accident, pedestrian, and motorcycle fatalities have on a family’s life and well being. Vision Zero seeks to eliminate traffic death and suffering.
Fast Free Case Evaluation
Advocates remind the public that we have the power to eliminate traffic deaths, which are not caused by “accidents” after all. For too long, they say, fatalities have been considered an inevitable side effect of motor vehicle transportation. But with Vision Zero, all crash fatalities can be prevented using approaches that prioritize safety. Vision Zero means taking a comprehensive look at systems for travel and ensure that they are safe for all users.

Recovery doesn’t come easily or quickly – and there are some injuries a family may never recover from. We feel that loss is too heavy a price for communities to pay for distracted or negligent driving. Improvements in road construction can reduce the pain and suffering that families experience following a car crash tragedy.
102 traffic related deaths, as seen in Austin in 2015, is far too many deaths. 1 death is too many. If you or someone you know has been affected by an Austin car accident death, contact McMinn Law Firm today for a free consultation.
Why Austin, Texas Needs Vision Zero Initiatives
Austin is a great place to live. There’s a music festival almost every weekend, activities for the family, and opportunity for a great education at many of Austin’s public schools. But Austin ranks as the 13th most dangerous city for traffic (among cities with population over 500,000).
Texas traffic fatality and injury: Texas is one of the most dangerous states for per capita traffic fatalities. At least one person has died on Texas roads since November 7, 2000. Not a day goes by that a Texan doesn’t lose their life to car accident injury.
Austin traffic fatality statistics:
- In an average year, 64 people are killed on Austin’s roads
- In an average year, 200 people are seriously injured in a car crash
According to Vision Zero, injury and fatal crashes cost Austinites over half a billion dollars annually. But the human toll is much worse.
