Way back in March, just before the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia hosted its mayoral forum, NinetyNine reached out to the candidates to ask them how they would go about implementing the “Vision Zero” traffic-safety initiative.
Our good friends over at Plan Philly, who also examined the importance of “the aggressive new approach to reducing pedestrian and cyclist injuries,” revisited it with City Council candidates today.
What will be interesting about Vision Zero in the Philadelphia context though is the unusually high level of authority City Council members have over the allocation of right-of-way on the public streets.
This is a valid point and/or concern. You can more about it via this link.
