Your Choices Matter

On Tuesday I had the pleasure of attending the Women’s Transportation Seminar (WTS) South Florida Chapter Vision Zero Luncheon in Boca Raton.

Today’s blog is more of a moment of Zen, using the New York City Vision Zero campaign Your Choices Matter:

Cities across Florida are looking at Vision Zero, with Fort Lauderdale having a Vision Zero policy in place.

The Florida Department of Transportation has a Vision Zero type program called Driving Down Fatalities.

Locally and across the state, the choice is still up to the individual on how we use the roads, how much we pay attention and how we show courtesy, patience and respect towards each other.  My hope is that all of us are making good choices so that no one has to die.

Sign the Vision Zero Florida petition to show your support for Driving Down Fatalities to zero.  If you’re OK with dying on our streets due to preventative crashes, please disregard.
