Countywide Vision Zero

The Contra Costa Transportation Authority is part of a collaboration with the county and its cities to develop a Vision Zero framework that supports safer travel for all residents in Contra Costa.

About Vision Zero

Vision Zero is a strategy to eliminate all fatalities and severe injuries that result from traffic collisions. The Vision Zero approach views transportation-related fatalities as preventable, not inevitable, and relies on multi-disciplinary collaboration that is informed by data and is focused on equity. To learn more about our Countywide Vision Zero framework, check out the How-To Guide and Toolbox documents below.

Why now?

Fatalities and severe injuries are 2.4x more likely than collisions involving only people in vehicles*
Pedestrians and cyclists account for 38% of injuries and fatalities on Contra Costa County Roads between 2008-2017*

* Transportation Injury Mapping System (TIMS), 2008-2017


  • Collect and review traffic safety data to identify trends, support local planning, and prioritize countywide efforts
  • Create a “How To” guide for local jurisdictions to implement Vision Zero and safety improvement projects consistently countywide.
  • Integrate Vision Zero as a standard practice in local and regional transportation planning and traffic operations
