Vision Zero

Vision Zero is a global strategy to eliminate all traffic fatalities and severe injuries, while increasing safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all. ZERO loss of life on Chapel Hill roads is acceptable. Vision Zero recognizes that people make mistakes, and that these mistakes should not be fatal. From NC Vision Zero: Traffic safety solutions, based on data-driven strategies, must have a zero-tolerance approach to injury prevention.

In October 2021, Chapel Hill Town Council adopted the Vision Zero Resolution. Prior to the adoption of this resolution, Chapel Hill has run street safety programs under a “Road to Zero” umbrella.
