Transportation-related fatalities across Lane County are on the rise. Bicyclists are amongst the most vulnerable users of our streets. Several efforts are taking place locally in the greater Eugene area through community organizations, advocates, and local government agencies to make our streets safer for everyone. The efforts include public education, law enforcement, and better engineering practices.

This panel discussion will highlight safety problems, explain the Vision Zero goal of zero transportation-related fatalities and serious injuries, and showcase several local approaches for making our streets safer for everyone.

City employees and community members on the panel include: Rob Zako-Executive Director of Better Eugene-Springfield Transit, Josh Roll-Transportation Planner, Lane Council of Governments, Emma Newman-Transportation Planner, City of Springfield,  Reed Dunbar-Transportation Planner, City of Eugene, Paul Adkins-Education Instructor, GEARS.

  • Wednesday, April 20th from 6:30 – 8:00 pm

After short presentations, Rob Zako will moderate a Q&A and discussion of what to do to make our streets safer for bicyclists and others.
