On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
Two decades ago, Sweden undertook an ambitious goal: getting traffic deaths down to zero, with a focus on those most in danger — pedestrians and cyclists. Known as “Vision Zero,” the initiative has been taken up by cities around the U.S., and was recently adopted by the District. We explore how D.C. plans to implement the plan, and consider how design, legislation, and enforcement can come together to create safer streets.
