The ultimate goal of Vision Zero is to eliminate all traffic deaths—pedestrians, cyclists and motorists alike. How exactly the city intends to accomplish this lofty mission is still up for debate, and residents are being asked to chime in during a series of public forums.

Changes are already underway for some of the city's deadliest roads. Atlantic Avenue will have re-timed stoplights, increased NYPD enforcement and a mandated 25 mph speed limit by the end of the month, and at least two dozen other streets will receive similar treatment in the near future. The Grand Concourse in the Bronx will be the second thoroughfare slated for overhaul.
