Report traffic safety concerns

The City has created an interactive map. You can use it to report traffic safety concerns along high injury streets. Public feedback and crash data will help create safety improvements along high Injury streets. This is part of the Vision Zero capital program.

Hi-visibility crosswalk - " zebra markings" are more visible to approaching vehicles. They improve yielding behavior.

Slow turn wedge - wedges create a buffer between pedestrians and traffic. They also help vehicles follow the proper turning path.

Hardened centerlines -  These keep drivers from cutting the corner during left turns. They also make pedestrians in the crosswalk easier to see.
