A No-Crash Course in Vision Zero Data
March 20, 2020 at 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Vision Zero was adopted unanimously by Portland City Council in 2015 with the goal of eliminating traffic deaths and serious injuries on Portland streets in a way that is equitable, accountable, and data-driven. But what does it mean to be data-driven? And should we stop there?
In this presentation, learn how Portland’s Vision Zero Action Plan was developed and how the Vision Zero team is using data to move into a future where all Portlanders can travel safely, regardless of the travel mode they use. Explore the datasets used in Vision Zero implementation and the challenges that come with them. Learn about the projects where creativity and innovation play a critical role by stretching beyond what is traditionally thought of as transportation safety, including automated enforcement and citywide crash analysis.
KEY LEARNING TAKEAWAYS
• What it means to be data-driven vs data-informed, especially in a long-term program setting
• What datasets the PBOT Vision Zero team uses for program implementation
• Data limitations and how to stay aware of them
