Final Week to Participate in Montgomery County’s Vision Zero Survey That Will Provide Opinions on How to Improve Traffic Safety and Eliminate Serious and Fatal Crashes

For Immediate Release: Friday, July 31, 2020

Montgomery County’s Vision Zero program, which seeks to eliminate serious and fatal traffic crashes, is gathering the ideas of residents to improve safety for walking, biking, rolling and driving. The Vision Zero program has a survey available in which opinions can be offered on a variety of safety issues.

The survey will close on Sunday, Aug. 9. It was launched on June 18 as part of developing a strategic plan that will guide the County toward reaching its Vision Zero goals by 2030.

“Our County is large and diverse, so achieving Vision Zero will look very different in places like Downtown Silver Spring than it will in Germantown or than it will in Damascus,” said County Executive Marc Elrich. “That is why we need to hear from our residents on their needs and ideas for improving transportation safety in their neighborhoods. This online survey will be one of many opportunities for residents to share their views.”

The survey will take an average of five to seven minutes to complete. The results will help shape future Vision Zero activities. The survey can be found at https://www.montgomerycountymd.gov/visionzero/2030plan.html .
