Details about event

Sunday, November 20, 1pm
Washington Gladden Social Justice Park, northeast corner of E. Broad St. and Cleveland Ave.

Please join us as we remember victims of traffic crashes and their loved ones, as well as first responders and medical professionals.

Traffic crash rates in Columbus are still increasing, unfortunately — up 14% in 2021 and rising — despite the “Vision Zero” traffic safety strategy that had been adopted by the City of Columbus two years ago.

Therefore, we are calling on our officials to immediately implement data-driven solutions to prevent traffic crashes beginning with the high-injury network arterials.

For too long, we have prioritized moving cars at high speeds over the safety of everyone, and society at large is paying the price with endless stories of lives ruined and/or never fully realized because of death, injuries, and lifelong disabilities.

This loss and suffering is preventable!

The National Safety Council estimates the annual cost of traffic crashes to society at $887 billion in 2021, which equates to $2.6 billion annual cost to the City of Columbus.

Join us as we call for an end to traffic crashes so as to achieve the shared goal of zero fatalities and zero serious injuries.

In conjunction with World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims [an international organization with a worldwide focus].
