February 2020 – On January 20, the Vision Zero Coalition marched for a better future in Tampa’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Parade. The MPO staff was joined by the African Students Association of USF and the Tampa Bay Lions in carrying safe streets messages and signs commemorating those lost to traffic violence during the last year in our county. Many spectators along the route showed or cheered their support!
Communities of color are disproportionately affected by traffic crashes across the US. Here in Hillsborough County, your chances of being in a severe crash are 20% higher in a minority community.
We hope to see you at the next Vision Zero Coalition event! Visit our Facebook page for updates @VisionZeroHillsborough.
