Fremont is already recognized as a leader in traffic safety among large cities in California and the nation. However, from 2014-2016, there were 20 fatalities and 76 severe injuries collisions from traffic crashes in Fremont. We can and must continue to do better and improve as the only acceptable number is zero.
Vision Zero considers the loss of life from traffic crashes as unacceptable and preventable, and identifies safety as the highest priority for the design and operation of the transportation system. The goal of Fremont Vision Zero 2020 is to significantly reduce fatalities and severe injuries by 2020.
Fremont Vision Zero 2020 is guided by the rigorous evaluation of traffic crash data and the implementation of a comprehensive and coordinated action plan involving transportation engineers, law enforcement officials, educators, the automobile industry, policymakers, and the community. The Vision Zero Action Plan is organized around the themes of Safer Streets, Safer People, and Safer Vehicles.

Fremont Recognized as a Leader for its Vision Zero 2020 Efforts
The City of Fremont’s Vision Zero Team was recognized by the Vision Zero Network, a national organization promoting efforts to eliminate all traffic fatalities and severe injuries across the country, for accomplishments with the Fremont Vision Zero 2020 Program. Public Works Director Hans Larsen was recently interviewed for a Q&A blog on how a medium-sized city can implement a successful Vision Zero program by collaborating across multiple City departments and prioritizing safety in decision making and resource allocation without a large budget. Hans was also the featured speaker in a webinar hosted by the Vision Zero network on how Fremont is a national model for other medium-sized cities looking to adopt Vision Zero.
