Walk SF’s New Speed Report Conversation (First Option)
November 16, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Dangerous speeds kill. Again and again on San Francisco’s streets.
When drivers go dangerous speeds, the risk for you and me and our loved ones skyrockets, and speed is the #1 contributor to severe and fatal crashes in our city.
Walk San Francisco launched the Slow Our Streets campaign in 2020 to take on dangerous speeds because there is simply no faster way to save lives from traffic crashes.
In 2021, together with our members, 35+ groups in the Vision Zero Coalition, and Families for Safe Streets, we successfully pushed the City to commit to creating a comprehensive speed management plan.
But this win will only be meaningful if the plan itself has meaningful commitments along with the funds and accountability needed to make it happen. So in 2022 with the help of volunteers and neighborhood groups, Walk SF conducted speed surveys around the city to see what’s really happening. We researched everything San Francisco is – and isn’t – doing related to speed, plus what’s really working here and elsewhere.
On November 15, Walk SF will release a report that is the culmination of that work and a blueprint for San Francisco to become what we call ‘a safe speed city.’
All Walk San Francisco members are invited to come to one of two online conversations about the new report. Members are what made this report possible, and we’re eager to share what we learned and what’s next.
