Envisioning Safer Streets for Charlotte

Vision Zero Commitment 

​The City of Charlotte is renewing its commitment to safer streets in 2018 with the creation of Vision Zero, an action plan designed to reduce crashes and eliminate traffic-related deaths and severe injuries by 2030. Why? Because even one traffic-related death is too many. 

​Join us at a community event to tell us about your experiences on Charlotte’s streets and help inform the Vision Zero action plan. Visit to learn more. 

​Can’t make it to an event? You can still help. Use this interactive map to mark areas that make you feel safe and unsafe as a pedestrian, cyclist, transit user or motorist.



Use Public Input to stay in the loop about road closures, city events, neighborhood resources and services.
