Page Background


The premise is that no loss of life is acceptable from crashes on our roadways. Humans are fallible and therefore the roadways should be designed to account for this and prevent deaths or serious injuries when mistakes happen.
The data driven plan focuses on the "four Es" of roadway safety: Engineering, Enforcement, Education, and Emergency Medical Services. Our plan will also include two more "Es" - Equity and Evaluation. It brings together a host of stakeholder agencies and commissions to collaborate, and develop and implement, an action plan to achieve the common goal so many of us have, safer roads for all users.

On July 5, 2022, County Executive Steuart Pittman signed Executive Order Number 58, endorsing a commitment to adopt the Vision Zero strategies in Anne Arundel County. Future work continues on an implementation plan that will contain a multitude of tasks, programs, and projects the goals of which are to decrease death and serious injuries on our roadways, with a vision of zero.
