To achieve the Vision Zero goal of eliminating traffic fatalities and reducing traffic crashes, the Vision Zero Action Plan will feature:
- Adopting a safe system approach for vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians
- Equitable engineering, enforcement and education
- data-driven decision making
- social equity considerations in road safety planning and implementation
On February 1, 2023, the City of Boca Raton was awarded a grant of $300,000 in federal funding from the US Department of Transportation to support the City’s Vision Zero Action Plan using the Safe System Approach.
The new $800 million Safe Streets and Roads for All (SS4A) Grant Program is a part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) which will provide $5 billion over five years for regional, local, and Tribal initiatives to prevent deaths and serious injuries on the nation’s roadways.
The City will use the award to develop a comprehensive safety action plan with the goal of eliminating fatalities and reduce serious injuries due to traffic accidents.
