8% of streets in the City of Atlanta account for 88% of traffic fatalities. 

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

From 2014 to 2016, 75 people died and 872 were severely injured in collisions on Atlanta’s streets. These were crashes involving people driving, biking, and walking. The majority of severe injuries and fatal crashes occurred on only a handful of city streets known as the “High-­Injury Network”. How can our city eliminate traffic deaths? Cities across the world have adopted Vision Zero policies with the aim to eliminate traffic deaths and serious injuries. Background: Why we can't ignore Atlanta's High Injury Network

We're calling on the City of Atlanta to:

  1. Fund and build all the promised Renew/TSPLOST Complete Streets

  2. Officially adopt a Vision Zero program that puts safety and equity first 

  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.

(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.)

Goal: 1,000 signatures

Once we reach our goal, we'll send this petition to Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms.
