Reviving sustainable mobility and making traveling around the city safer, these are some of the objectives of the Vision Zero proposal.
A 23 billion euro investment to ensure the development of a sustainable mobility and safe in the city. I’m asking Legambiente, Kyoto Club, Vivinstrada e Guccione Foundation, who presented a proposal divided into four key points. The aim is to invest PNRR funds on road safety and the redevelopment of roads and urban areas.
The four points through which the proposal made by Legambiente and the others is articulated associations and foundations are as follows:
- Retraining Some cities;
- Strengthening of transport regional railway, local public transport and shared mobility;
- Entrusting the delegation to an undersecretary of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers;
- Preparation of a plan for communication and training.
The proposal for safe sustainable mobility also in the city has been called Vision Zero. As the associations explained in a press release:
Vision Zero means new mobility, road safety, environment, representative and direct democracy, urban regeneration, decarbonisation. Between road collisions and urban pollution in 2019 more than 83 thousand people died: the social cost, again according to Istat data of that year, was equal to 16.9 billion euros, 1% of the national GDP. This bloody toll, which has an enormous social and economic cost, sees speed as the main cause of road collisions and an element that determines their severity, but it is not inevitable.
It can be changed simply by activating the Isa device (Intelligent Speed Adaptation), moderating the speed with greater controls and reducing road sections and speed, increasing the modal share and dissuading the use of private vehicles, putting the city center and the traffic is people and not cars, the focus of mobility is on users and not on means of transport. In an acronym: City Vision Zero, which must be realized without losing the opportunity of the next funds coming and under discussion.
