"In the three years since the District of Columbia committed to Vision Zero, traffic deaths have gone up, not down."

Vision Zero is not just words. It's actions. And actions have been generally lacking here.

There's been SOME action. Is it a lot more than what would have happened otherwise? I don't know, I feel like some stuff is just labelled "Vision Zero" and very little can be attributed to the program itself. But, I also have seen in my role on the BAC that most of the traffic deaths in DC have been from either DWI, speeding or all too often speeding+DWI. There are a lot of fatal single-car crashes, or people who are in the wrong place when a drunk driver loses control of their car. The only way to stop those that I can think of is a lot more enforcement. (Which is what we should do).
