We have the opportunity to learn from every accident about how to prevent another one. The Vision Zero Boston Taskforce is instrumental in investigating fatal crashes, introducing ideas for safety improvements and putting those ideas into action. The attorneys at Feinberg & Alban PC are thrilled that the city is stepping up to the plate. During the 70 years since our firm was founded, our lawyers have often sought solutions to roadway safety hazards. Vision Zero is an excellent forum for making changes that help our clients and all Bostonians.
The Vision Zero Boston Taskforce makes prompt visits to the site of every accident in the city that results in death or serious injuries. The team investigates the accident and recommends improvements to roadway design, laws and community outreach that can make the area safer. Suggested changes that have worked include:
Our lawyers communicate with the taskforce about dangerous conditions we become aware of through our practice. Our proactive approach has addressed some of the biggest risks on our roadways, including drunk driving, distracted driving, aggressive driving, speeding and tailgating.
Rapid response is a key element of the Vision Zero program. By visiting every fatal accident, the Vision Zero Boston Taskforce can initiate effective changes more quickly. In addition, the taskforce maintains an interactive site that allows you to review updated information about dangers, recommendations for improvements and the progress of those improvements.
