On Thursday, December 3, 2015, the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia and Thomas Jefferson University Hospital are co-hosting Philadelphia’s first Vision Zero conference. Vision Zero is based on the concept that road crashes are not accidents, but are preventable events. Road deaths, currently totaling nearly 100 per year in Philadelphia, can be reduced to zero through education, engineering, and enforcement.
National experts in safety design, engineering, education and enforcement from both the public and private sectors will share their expertise and experience to help lay the groundwork for a goal and action plan that is tailored to Philadelphia and employs best practices. Join us for a day of speakers, panels, and break out-sessions focused on this crucial safety issue. The American Planning Association Pennsylvania Chapter Southeast section (APAPASE) has requested a total of 6.75 CM credits for this event. The cost to attend this all-day conference at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia is $60 ($75 includes a discounted Bicycle Coalition membership).
