Vision ZeroVision Zero is a multi-national road traffic safety project that aims to achieve a roadway system with no fatalities or serious injuries in road traffic. A core principle of the vision is that 'Life and health can never be exchanged for other benefits within the society'.


Traffic deaths are preventable
It is up to all of us to be aware.  Look for people walking, bicycling
as well as motorists

For Motorists
• Slow Down! Speed is the cause of 32% of all fatal crashes.
• Reduce tempers. Just Cool It!
• Avoid distractions while driving. Focus on the road!
• Pass bicyclists safely! Allow at least three feet between your vehicle and the bicyclist.
Drive Friendly Dunedin!

Every Bicyclist and Pedestrian is Important to Someone.
1 in 4 traffic fatalities is a pedestrian.

For Bicyclists
• Always wear a helmet. Ride in the same direction of traffic on the street.
• Yield to traffic when appropriate. It’s better to yield than “be in the right” and risk injury.
• Be visible. Position yourself in the lane so others can easily see you. Always use a headlight and taillight at night.
Bicycle Friendly Dunedin!
