    Vision Zero Research Partnership

    As part of the Evaluation and Data Subcommittee Goals, Action Item (2.3) is to “Engage university research partners to design and implement traffic safety research and program evaluations.”


    The City of Philadelphia's Office of Transportation and Infrastructure Systems (oTIS) has partnered with ImpactED at the University of Pennsylvania’s Fels Institute of Government to engage Philadelphia’s robust research community on the topic of Vision Zero and traffic safety. In order to do this, we are convening a Vision Zero Research Partnership of both researchers and practitioners to promote innovative, smart thinking around Vision Zero.


    Being a member of the Vision Zero Research Partnership includes:


    • Completing a brief online survey (sent via email in February 2018) about your current research ideas and needs related to Vision Zero

    • Attending a 1-day Vision Zero Research Workshop (if schedule permits)

    • Sharing research ideas and needs via the Online Vision Zero Research Portal, which will launch in June 2018

    About the Research Workshop

    The Research Workshop will take place on Wednesday, May 2, 2018  from 9:00AM - 4:00PM at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).

    Did you know?


    Each state establishes its own criteria for what makes a crash “reportable.” In Pennsylvania, a crash is reportable if it involves a motor vehicle and:

        (a) a motor vehicle is towed from the scene
        (b) someone is transported to the hospital in an ambulance or
        (c) a fatality occurs (PA Vehicle Code Title 75 Section 3746 (a)).
