Vision Cero – Una politica publica para detener la carniceria x atropellamientos de peatones y ciclistas

El Gobierno del Didtrito Fedeal, debe imitar esta iniciativa y fijarse como meta para el año 2018 la disminucion en 100% al numero de peatones y ciclistas muertos, heridos y discapacitados por atropellamiento. Y adquirir la obligacion de informar mensualmente las cifras de siniestros y las acciones emprendidas cada mes para combatir esta vergonzante circunstancia.

Campos de accion sobre los que deben trabajar las autoridades de gobierno:

Legislativas: deben eliminarse de la calle a los conductores peligrosos; el atropellamiento con automovil debe considerarse delito culposo, responsabilizando al conductor de todos los gastos funerarios, medicos, hospitalarios y de una indemnizacion compensatoria por la perdida de ingresos durante su incapacidad y por la perdida potencial de ingresos vitalicia por las discapacidades consecuentes que sufra la victima del siniestro. Hacer obligatorio para todos los automotores la contratacion de un seguro por daños a terceros en sus bienes y sus personas, integrando su pago al de la renovacion en el registro vehicular.

Exigir que todos los automotores esten equipados con sistemas sensores de presencia

Endurecer sanciones a infracciones de marcha, a 100 SMG, duplicarlas en primera reincidencia y suspension definitiva de licencia en segunda reincidencia. Las infracciones de marcha causaran sobrecargos en la prima de seguro, por equidad.

Disminuir el Limite de Velocidad Urbana a 30 KmH, en calles secundarias, 50 KmH en vias primarias y 70 KmH en vias rapidas de acceso controlado

Impulsar y privilegiar el transporte publico, haciendo un sistema integrado multimodal y dotandolo de infraestructura exclusiva para su movilidad  .

Impulsar y privilegiar la movilidad activa -peatonal y en bicicleta-

Impulsar la participacion comunitaria en la busqueda de soluciones a situaciones peligrosas en sus comunidades.

STREETBEAT
Three New Yorkers are dead in one day, each killed while they crossed the street. In less than 24 hours this weekend, reckless drivers killed a mother of twins, a 73-year-old man and a 9-year-old boy.These crashes are terrible, and they are preventable. The fight to stop the carnage is called Vision Zero.

You’ve heard it from Mayor Bill de Blasio, from Police Commissioner Bill Bratton and in the outrage of people across the city. But what is it? And what will it take to make it happen?

Vision Zero is the rallying cry of a growing movement of New Yorkers. It’s a goal for New York City — no New Yorker should be killed or injured by traffic.

More than 70,000 New Yorkers are killed and injured every year on New York City streets. The carnage is caused by traffic crashes and traffic crashes are preventable.Reaching Vision Zero will require people demanding changes in all corners of the city and participation on all levels of the political process.

From the State Senate to your community board, we will need to convince elected and appointed officials to make bold decisions to match this bold idea. The fight for new bike lanes and public plazas, better crosswalks and the expansion of Select Bus Service and Citi Bike will be part of the Vision Zero equation too. And most importantly, your involvement will make all the difference.

Vision Zero is a big idea, standing on the shoulders of giant changes. To reach Vision Zero, we will fight for laws that save lives and streets that are built for the people who use them. And we’re relying on you to get involved.

Laws that Save Lives
With State Senators and Assembly members who’ve joined the movement for Vision Zero, we will introduce legislation to keep dangerous drivers off the road and to create punishments that make drivers think twice before being reckless in their car or truck.Lower Speed Limit: New Yorkers will be in control of their own destiny after this “home rule” bill passes, making us — not the State Legislature — the decider on New York City’s speed limit and more.

Suspended Licenses: When a New Yorker is killed or seriously injured by a driver with a suspended license, the driver will go to jail, once Senator Michael Gianaris passes this bill.

Careless Drivers: If there’s evidence of a moving violation, the NYPD can ticket the driver even if no officer witnessed the crash, once Senator Daniel Squadron and Assembly Member Brian Kavanagh pass this bill.

Streets for People
With activists committees in every borough, we are working with community boards and City Hall to identify streets where biking and walking are unsafe, and then demand changes to turn these streets toward Vision Zero.Speed Limits: More New Yorkers are killed in crashes caused by speeding than anything else, so the expansion of a 20 mph speed limit, automated speed enforcement cameras and public plazas will slow drivers to save lives.

Biking & Walking: With the increased installation of bikes lanes, wide sidewalks and safe crosswalks, traffic crashes will drop.

Public Transportation: By installing Citi Bike stations and Select Bus Service routes in more neighborhoods, public transportation will be the priority on more New York City streets, and a real choice for more New Yorkers.

You
In 2014, you and your neighborhood matter more than ever. You have skills that could change the status quo of streets in your neighborhood. What can you do for your neighborhood?Just choose your borough to sign a petition about a local campaign or to get started at the next local activist meeting.
