Safe Streets Pinellas is a collaborative effort to create a transportation system that is safe for everyone. Our goal is for no one to be killed or seriously injured using the roadways in Pinellas County.
On average, two people are killed or seriously injured each day in Pinellas County. With 90 people killed and more seriously injured last year on our roadways, assigning blame to individuals isn’t solving our transportation crisis. Forward Pinellas started Safe Streets Pinellas, a Vision Zero safety effort, to address this.
Vision Zero, a strategy employed by communities across the country and the world, radically redefines the idea of what transportation safety means: that not one person should be killed or seriously injured using our roadways.
Over the course of this year, Forward Pinellas will work with our partners and the community to develop an action plan complete with tools and strategies to work towards eliminating deaths on our roadways. We are looking closely at high injury corridors, conducting demonstration projects, and exploring how to implement Safe Streets in Pinellas County.
