ITE Vision Zero Website

April 24, 2017 by Dan Hennessey

One of our own traffic engineers, Dafne Valle, attended the 2017 Texas ITE Spring Meeting in Frisco, Texas last week.  This is the first of her updates from the meeting.

The Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) released its own Vision Zero website during the 2017 Texas ITE Spring Meeting.  Vision Zero is a new approach to safety planning that is focused on the elimination of crash-related fatalities and serious injuries.  Vision Zero has a multidisciplinary approach that brings together professionals such as planners, engineers, law enforcement officials, health professionals and others to address the complexity of this safety problem.

Jeffrey Paniati, the Executive Director of ITE, described the website as an interactive tool that will provide a variety of safety resources that will act as a toolbox, containing a collection of technical reports, data analysis tools, on-demand webinars and other resources intended for transportation professionals.  The interactive tool provides information based on safety resource, mode of travel, road safety pillar, region of the world, topic, and resource type.  For more information go to
