New website--Parachute Vision Zero Network

In Canada, Vision Zero road safety initiatives are emerging from coast to coast. This is a watershed moment for road safety in Canada and Parachute has responded to stakeholder needs to create Parachute Vision Zero Network, a network that brings key players together across sectors, shares current knowledge and best practices, draws attention and access to the importance of data and evidence, and provides access to valuable resources to build capacity. This work was kicked off when Parachute hosted Canada’s first ever Vision Zero Summit in Toronto in 2016. This week they have launched their new site at http://www.visionzeronetwork.ca!                    ...  

Parachute Vision Zero Network works to share current research and best practices in road safety, support data driven models, create and disseminate evidence-based resources and bridge key multi-sector players together to increase the overall awareness and effectiveness of the Vision Zero approach. In building awareness on Vision Zero, we build capacity for more jurisdictions across the country to integrate a Vision Zero approach. At an individual level, implementing the Vision Zero approach in communities will ultimately lead to a shift in thinking about motor vehicle collisions, moving away from the belief that these are accidents and towards the understanding that collisions are predictable and preventable.
