SCAG’s Go Human campaign is welcoming 2021 with renewed commitments to equity, mobility, and transportation safety with the adoption of the by the Regional Council on Feb. 4, 2021. The resolution provides a framework for reducing fatalities and serious injuries across the SCAG region in Imperial, Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Ventura counties.
The Toward Zero Deaths resolution establishes a safety target of 3.5% annual reductions in fatalities and serious injuries to reach the goal of zero by 2050. SCAG will work toward this goal by adopting a Regional Safety Policy, affirming commitments to equity and data-driven approaches, and encouraging partner agencies to develop Toward Zero Death policies.
