The City Council has adopted the 2023-2025 Minneapolis Vision Zero Action Plan, which sets priorities for the next three years toward the City’s goal of ending traffic deaths and severe injuries by 2027.
The updated plan builds on the work of the 2020-2022 Vision Zero Action Plan and draws on information in the 2022 Vision Zero Crash Study. An average of 150 people suffered life-altering injuries or were killed in traffic crashes each year on streets in Minneapolis from 2017 to 2021. That is unacceptable and preventable. Traffic crashes disproportionately impact people in neighborhoods with lower incomes, Native American residents and people walking and bicycling.
The plan features 17 strategies and 78 actions to implement between 2023 and 2025. They include four focus areas:
- Safety improvements on high-injury streets.
- Reducing dangerous vehicle speeds.
- Traffic safety camera pilot addressing speeding and running red lights.
- Reforms to address racial disparities in traffic stops.
