NEW - VISION ZERO SURVEY

End Traffic Fatalities in Sonoma County

Vision Zero is a countywide initiative, led by a partnership between the Sonoma County Department of Health Services and the Sonoma County Transportation Authority, which pledges to reduce all traffic related deaths to zero. Staff have created a community survey (below links) to respond to and share widely among your networks. We will be doing continuous evaluation to ensure we are getting responses from a broad cross-section of the community. We thank you for your participation.
