Unless you’re a politician like Stephen Holyday or Georgio Mammoliti, who only seem to care about how fast someone can drive in our city rather than caring about people dying, you probably know about Vision Zero, a policy being adopted by cities around the world to reach a goal of ZERO deaths on their streets.
A lot of people care quite passionately (and rightly so) about people dying on our streets, and there are good resources out there that track the death and destruction auto-centric planning has brought to Toronto.
I’ve decided to develop a page here on BikingToronto devoted to showing those resources.
Click here to visit the new Vision Zero Page. It has a description of Vision Zero, along with wikipedia links to what cities around the world are doing. It also has a Metro News map of all the fatalities on Toronto’s streets so far this year, and links to lots of Metro #TOdeadlystreets articles.
I’ve also embedded a twitter feed from @struckbotTO, which RTs all Toronto Police Service tweets about collisions AND there’s links to recent posts on the Toronto Carnage blog, which I update when I see a news story about someone getting injured or killed because of a car.
