    Take the Safe Streets Pledge

    As more Atlantans looks for 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 -- 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”. In fact, just 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. Vision Zero has proved successful in other parts of the world — and now it’s gaining momentum in major American cities.

    1,274 pledges

    Join us as we call 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.

    Goal: 1,000 signatures

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