Vision Zero Community of Practice

About

The Vision Zero Community of Practice (VZ CoP) offers technical resources to assist local communities with reaching their goal of zero traffic fatalities through the adoption and implementation of Vision Zero.

Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), along with a number of partners, support the vision of zero deaths, including Vision Zero. VZ CoP is a part of FHWA efforts to bring the latest resources to practitioners who have adopted or are considering adopting Vision Zero, applying the Safe System Approach, and growing a positive safety culture in their communities.

Vision Zero Action Plans

Communities of all sizes across the United States employ Vision Zero Action Plans. They are both Action Plans that meet the Vision Zero Network’s criteria and those that were developed independently.

News Flash

  • The FHWA Vision Zero Community Pairing Program is accepting applications for the next cycle of the two-year program that will kick off in January 2023. The Vision Zero Community Pairing Program provides a platform for sharing information and noteworthy practices, assessing strategies and actions, and forging beneficial learning relationships among Vision Zero communities. The program also aims to create and foster long-term partnerships to save lives from traffic-related crashes. Each Vision Zero community pair will have opportunities to virtually meet on a regular basis and visit one another in-person once during the program. All pairs will participate in quarterly forums to exchange information on topics of mutual interest. 
    • If you are interested in participating in the program as a mentor, mentee, or peer organization, please reach out to Chimai Ngo, chimai.ngo@dot.gov for additional information and the short application form. Application forms are due by Friday, November 18, 2022; and we will notify you if we can pair your community with another one.
