    Take the Safe Streets Pledge

    As more Atlantans look for ways to opt-out of traffic, get active, and strengthen community connections, the lack of safe streets for people walking, biking, using wheelchairs, scooting, or waiting for the bus is unavoidable -- and unacceptable.

    From 2014 to 2016, 75 people died, and 872 were severely injured in car collisions on Atlanta’s streets. These were crashes involving people driving, biking, and walking.

    Most of the severe injuries and fatal crashes occurred on just a handful of city streets -- what's known as the “High-­Injury Network.” Less than 8% of streets in the City of Atlanta account for 88% of traffic fatalities. Read more on why we can't ignore Atlanta's High Injury Network.

    We believe no one should die during their commute or using the Atlanta roads. 

    We can do something about traffic deaths. Cities across the world have adopted Vision Zero policies aimed at eliminating all traffic fatalities and severe injuries while increasing safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all. Cities are also investing in transportation systems and infrastructure that provide Safe Streets for All, by reducing motor vehicle speeds to safe levels and providing safe spaces for all different ways of getting around. 

    1,384 pledges

    Join us as we call on the City of Atlanta to:

    1. Officially adopt a Vision Zero program that puts safety and equity first 
    2. Fund and build safe streets for all through approved plans including Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms' Action Plan for Safer Streets
    3. Prioritize the High-Injury Network streets for safety interventions

    Sign the pledge to say YES to funding, building, and creating safe streets for all.

    Goal: 1,000+ signatures

    Update: We've delivered over 1,000 signatures to Mayor Bottoms! Yours will help us demonstrate the growing demand for Safe Streets.

    (Note that we request your address because we need to show that there is broad, citywide support for safe and Complete Streets. We do not share your information with anyone.)
