The Texas Vision Zero Movement

Let’s end traffic deaths in Texas

Texas leads the nation in traffic deaths. We can lead the nation in ending traffic deaths. Every day ten people die on our Texas streets and roads, each one a family tragedy.

People across the State are working to improve their communities and our transportation system to prevent these tragedies. The Texas Vision Zero movement seeks comprehensive systemic approaches to ending traffic deaths.

We don’t want people dying or being seriously hurt in Texas while riding in trucks. We don’t want people being hurt while walking or riding bikes. We want safe streets for all.

Farm&City and Central Texas Families for Safe Streets work closely together and with activists, organizations, elected officials, and public servants from across the state on solutions to save lives.

A major focus of the Texas Vision Zero movement is dealing with the deadly problem of speed, the most common factor in traffic deaths statewide. We have made mistakes in the design of our roadways and our cultural acceptance of dangerous behaviors, and these are things that we can fix, so that less families suffer in the future.

The Texas Department of Transportation has adopted a Road to Zero goal to end traffic deaths statewide by 2050 and cut traffic deaths in half by 2035. Local governments in Texas have started to adopt their own Vision Zero goals, including the 5 largest cities, the largest county, one metropolitan planning organization, and other local governments across the state. is a project of Farm&City – a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to high quality urban and rural human habitat in Texas in perpetuity, and Central Texas Families for Safe Streets – an all volunteer coalition of victims and family members of victims of traffic violence, seeking to change the world so that other families do not have to suffer as they have.
