Reducing Traffic Fatalities to Zero by 2024
Ben Matranga worked on Mayor Ed Lee’s Vision Zero initiative to reduce traffic fatalities in San Francisco to zero by 2024. Ben worked to direct, coordinate, and communicate critical, multi-faceted initiatives and ensure successful implementation. The Vision Zero initiative brought together numerous city departments to focus on five critical areas – engineering, education, enforcement, evaluation, and policy – and worked towards expanding existing goals to reduce traffic collisions and improve the safety of San Francisco’s streets. Ben collaborated with community stakeholders, as well as across city departments to develop and implement action plans to achieve Vision Zero.
