NACTO Webinar – Getting to Vision Zero: Rethinking Large Vehicles on City Streets

NACTO Webinar – Getting to Vision Zero: Rethinking Large Vehicles on City Streets


Large vehicles (such as fire trucks, waste management and freight/delivery vehicles) disproportionately impact safety on city streets. Despite making up only 4% of the U.S. vehicle fleet, trucks account for 7% of all pedestrian and 12% of all motor vehicle occupant fatalities. Over the past year, even while overall traffic fatalities slightly declined, fatalities involving large trucks jumped 9%.

Cities are leading the way in transforming how we use large vehicles on our streets, from comprehensive purchasing strategies that put Vision Zero at the core, to new models for delivering freight on city streets.

Join NACTO, the USDOT Volpe Center, New York City, and Seattle to see how:

  • New York City created and is implementing a roadmap to transform the city’s fleet of thousands of fire trucks, refuse trucks, and other heavy-duty vehicles for safer outcomes
  • Seattle is piloting a new approach to urban goods deliveries, with e-tricycles and real-time delivery data, in partnership with UPS and the University of Washington

This webinar is a complement to Optimizing Large Vehicles for Urban Environments, a pair of in-depth reports with best practices for redesigning large vehicles in urban environments, saving lives through fewer and less severe crashes.

Eligible for 1 AICP CM credit.
