As part of the Vision Zero Greensboro process, stakeholders have volunteered to work directly on issues in three areas of concern.
Emphasis Area 1 – Speed and Driver Awareness
Both data analysis and stakeholder discussion identified speeding as a leading issue in Greensboro. This emphasis area also addresses keeping drivers alert, which includes driving under the influence and distracted driving.
Emphasis Area 2 – Run Off the Road and Protecting All Users
Data analysis revealed over half of Greensboro and Guilford County fatalities involved a vehicle departing the roadway or crossing the center line. Protecting all users refers to occupant protection (such as seatbelt use) and age-related crashes (younger or older adult drivers).
Emphasis Area 3 – Protecting Vulnerable Users
This issue had a strong focus at the first stakeholder workshop and includes pedestrians, bicyclist, and motorcyclists. It addresses the needs of all users and ensures that adequate facilities are a consideration in community design.
