SAFE Supports Automated Speed Enforcement
Speeding is one of the leading causes of severs and fatal injury collisions in California. Los Angeles is committed to eliminating traffic deaths and prioritizing safety improvement that align with the mission of Vision Zero. SAFE is supportive of many of these safety improvements, including Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE).
An ASE system is an enforcement technique with one or more motor vehicle sensors producing recorded images of motor vehicles traveling at speeds above a desired threshold. A bill requiring Automated Speed Enforcement, especially in school zones is currently in the works.

Vision Zero Across The State of California
Los Angeles is the deadliest city in the United States to bike, walk or drive in. Every year, more than 200 people are killed while traveling Los Angeles roads. Nearly half the people killed on our streets are walkers and cyclists and a shocking number of them are children and older adults. In fact, traffic collisions are the leading cause of death for young adults and children.
Vision Zero is the commitment to eliminate all traffic deaths by 2025. It brings together transportation engineers, police officers, advocates and policymakers to work together towards creating safer streets. The focus is protecting our most vulnerable road users, including children, older adults, walkers and cyclists.
SAFE's goal is to get the Vision Zero Initiative applied state-wide and make California the first Vision Zero state.
