Collaborating with many partners, the Transportation Department is promoting coordinated solutions in engineering, education, encouragement, evaluation, equity, and enforcement. Together we will:
  • Consider Vision Zero best practices – including policies, programs, and strategies – that are successful elsewhere and applicable to Bellevue.
  • Coordinate with existing road safety efforts underway in Bellevue and Vision Zero initiatives elsewhere.
  • Engage community stakeholders in setting the priorities for investment in Vision Zero strategies.
  • Propose Vision Zero strategies through 2030, and the financial and staffing resources necessary for a phased implementation in the 2019 to 2022 timeframe.
