The Seattle Times published an Opinion article, “SDOT proposal: Seattle drivers should slow down to save lives” explaining that traffic engineers at the Seattle Department of Transportation and police officers at the Seattle Police Department will work to achieve a goal of zero traffic-related fatalities and serious injuries by 2030. It’s an effort called Vision Zero, focusing on designing safe and forgiving streets, no matter if you are walking, biking or driving.

In 2013, Seattle had more than 10,000 police-reported crashes, in which 155 people were seriously injured and 23 people died. Last year brought another 15 fatalities.
