Vision Zero is Los Angeles

Every year, more than 200 people are killed while trying to move throughout our city. Nearly half the people killed in traffic crashes were walking or bicycling, and an alarming number of those killed are children and older adults. In fact, traffic collisions are a leading cause of death for children in Los Angeles. Residents of underserved communities are disproportionately killed in traffic crashes.

The Los Angeles Department of Transportation (LADOT) is making critical safety improvements on LA’s streets to prioritize human life. Our streets should be safe, no matter how you get around.
As directed by Mayor Eric Garcetti, this citywide effort brings together transportation engineers, police officers, advocates, and policymakers to work together towards creating safer streets. Our focus is on protecting our most vulnerable road users, including children, older adults, and people walking and bicycling.

The City of Los Angeles has been monitoring and collecting data on traffic collisions for some time. Some charts have been developed that present one view of the data, displaying collisions by transit mode and year.
