Vision Zero Fleet Safety Forum, New York City, 2018 — ADoNA Report

At Advanced Drivers of North America [ADoNA], we attend important road safety conferences in various countries to help keep ourselves as well-informed as possible regarding the latest research and developments in this complex, rapidly-changing field.

New York City very laudably took on the Vision Zero challenge a few years ago and this 2018 event was its fifth annual conference.

Even for the countries with the world’s safest roads, such as long-term, global leaders Sweden and Britain, the Vision Zero goal of having absolutely no deaths each year is a massive challenge, but — as the old saying goes — narrowly missing a difficult target is far better than achieving an easy one.

In the past few years, New York City has seen big reductions in the annual number of road deaths and serious injuries, but there is still a long way to go in a task that becomes harder once all of the so-called “low-hanging fruit” have been picked.

“One important aspect of events like this is how they highlight the need to both target and harness the existing regional and national safety cultures in order to get the best possible life-saving results from and for the community.”              Eddie Wren, President & Chief Instructor, ADoNA
