Henson Fuerst is pleased to support NC Vision Zero—part of the larger Vision Zero campaign to eliminate traffic deaths in cities across the U.S. and Canada. Their work helps reduce speeds, build safer streets, address distracted/impaired driving, and hold drivers and pedestrians responsible for traffic safety.
Pedestrian and Cyclist Crashes in the U.S.
In 2015, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported 5,376 pedestrians were killed from injuries sustained in crashes caused by motor vehicles. In addition, some 45,000 cyclists are injured each year—and such collisions claim 800 lives yearly.
About Vision Zero
In many cities; the Vision Zero campaign has reduced speed limits, installed speed radar signs, and helped to initiate other traffic safety reforms. At Henson Fuerst, we hope such initiatives can lead to the kind of change needed to eliminate roadway fatalities.
On November 18th, NC Vision Zero met on the steps of the North Carolina State Capitol in Raleigh as part of the World Day of Remembrance. The event honors those we have lost in road traffic collisions—including the 1,412 citizens of North Carolina who lost their lives to this grave public health hazard last year.
