Take the 'Vision Zero' pledge for safer streets

Take the 'Vision Zero' pledge for safer streets

No one should die or lose a loved one while traveling on roads in the Denver metro region. Traffic crashes are preventable and need a planning and engineering approach that prioritizes protecting human life.

Help the Denver metro region move toward realizing the vision of zero deaths or serious injuries on our roads by taking the Vision Zero Pledge to practice safe behaviors while traveling from one place to another.

Help spread the word! Share the pledge and ask others to join your commitment to the Vision Zero goal.

The city already incorporates many Vision Zero practices into transportation projects and programs and, with your help by taking the Vision Zero pledge, we can make the transportation system safer. The city will also continue to expand and incorporate Vision Zero practices through the development and implementation of the Transportation & Mobility Plan.

Pledge to:

  • Be more aware of and consider the safety of people not traveling by car.
  • Obey posted speeds and slow down, specifically at intersections and driveways.
  • Yield to people walking, biking, and rolling. Give them extra space.
  • Be alert and never drive distracted or under the influence.
  • Keep my eyes on the road and never text and drive.
  • Make eye contact with people driving, walking, biking and rolling to ensure everyone is aware of each other.
  • Look right and double check for people before turning right.
  • Stop before crossing the street. Use a crosswalk, if available, and look in all directions before crossing.
  • Wear a helmet while riding a bicycle or motorcycle.
  • Share this Vision Zero Pledge with family and friends.
