CDOT and Sustain Charlotte partner on Vision Zero event

Last year, 21 people were hit and killed while walking in Charlotte, and 2 people lost their lives while riding their bicycles. In the Queen City (and across the country), the statistics are sobering. How can each of us work to reduce those numbers to zero?

On August 11th,  Sustain Charlotte hosted Grow Smart CLT: Let’s End Traffic Deaths in Charlotte! to address this question.

With Charlotte DOT’s staff Angela Berry and Alfred Oyoyo, we discussed ways that all of us can help to achieve the City’s goal of having ZERO people killed (or seriously injured) in traffic crashes by the year 2030.

The event included time for audience Q&A, and we shared some practical ways that you can begin taking action to make Charlotte’s streets safer for walking, biking, and riding public transit.
