Safety in Action
A multi-decade focus on the 4E's of evaluation, engineering, enforcement and education has contributed to San Jose’s good relative record for traffic safety. The Vision Zero San Jose  action plan includes continuing the successful implementation of the 4E’s, expanding the analysis of crash data, aligning limited resources on high crash corridors, and adding a program of advocacy related to technology, policy, and partnerships.
