Mark Your Calendars: City Announces Vision Zero Workshops

This afternoon, DOT released the schedule for nine Vision Zero workshops in all five boroughs over the next three months. These workshops build upon the Vision Zero town halls the city is hosting now by asking residents to prioritize street safety initiatives, pinpoint dangerous locations, and discuss solutions with agency staff.

The meetings are intended to inform DOT and NYPD as they develop pedestrian safety plans for each borough. Workshops kick off in Brooklyn before heading to the Bronx, Queens, Manhattan and concluding in Staten Island:
