A Rapid Response to Fatalities
We will not achieve the goal of zero fatal and serious traffic crashes overnight. When tragedy strikes, we are committed to learn every lesson and take every corrective action we can.
The Vision Zero Boston Task Force has established a multi-disciplinary, multi-agency Rapid Response Team that will analyze and respond to every fatal traffic crash in the city, following the immediate response of the Boston EMS. This team will study the crash and recommend appropriate street design changes, judicial or legislative follow-up, community outreach, and other necessary actions.
This Rapid Response Team will monitor feedback from the community to quickly identify and respond to traffic safety issues that are emerging at particular locations or involve common behavior or vehicle types that need addressing.
