Yesterday evening, Streetsblog participated in a live radio broadcast on KALW about Vision Zero with Cathy DeLuca, Interim Director of Walk SF, Dr. Rochelle Dicker, former director of the Injury Prevention Center at UCSF, and Julie Mitchell, co-founder of San Francisco Bay Area Families for Safe Streets. Mitchell’s son was killed in a 2013 crash with a truck while he was riding his bike in the Mission. The show was hosted by City Visions‘ Joseph Pace.

The show was an update on Vision Zero advocacy and asked how effective it has been so far. Other topics included Automated Speed Enforcement, Dutch-style infrastructure, and how to get SFMTA to install safety features faster.
