Public Health and Transportation

  • “If 30,000 people were killed each year in the United States by a curable illness, we would call it a public health crisis.  We would deploy resources, vaccines and interventions to address the spread and bring the death toll to the only acceptable level: zero.   Yet, every year 30,000+ people are killed in preventable traffic collisions in this country.  Vision Zero asks us to see those traffic deaths like polio or cholera:  epidemics that, with an urgent health framing and public response, can be eradicated.”  (A case study by Arielle Fleisher on April 14, 2016 at http://visionzeronetwork.org
