In 2020, 49 community members were killed in traffic-related incidents in San Jose. Despite fewer cars on the road due to shelter-in-place orders, San Jose residents saw an increase in driver speeds AND overall traffic deaths did not decrease. Now, halfway through 2021, the rise in traffic deaths has not slowed down.
Join UC Berkeley SafeTREC, California Walks, the City of San Jose’s Department of Transportation, and LA Walks to learn about traffic safety trends in San Jose over the past 5 years and how COVID-19 and Shelter-in-Place affected traffic safety. This presentation will also take a look at resource guides created by Los Angeles Walks and Walk San Jose for crash survivors and those who have lost a loved one to a traffic crash.
