(Washington, DC) –The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) extended the public comment period for the revised Vision Zero rulemaking. The public comment period will continue through Monday, April 10.

Vision Zero is the Bowser Administration's plan to eliminate all traffic fatalities and serious injuries by the year 2024. The revised rulemaking is based on input received both in written comments and in hearing testimonies.

The revised Vision Zero proposal strikes a balance between strengthening deterrents of dangerous behavior and establishing a new framework for penalties that are both proportional to existing fine regimes and reflective of the fatal consequences of violations.

DDOT continues to welcome feedback on these newly proposed rules. Comments can be submitted electronically to [email protected], or in writing to Alice Kelly, Manager, Policy & Legislative Affairs Division, Office of the Director, District Department of Transportation, 55 M Street, SE, Suite 400, Washington, DC 20003.

Copies of the proposed rules can be requested. Submit requests either in writing to the above address, or electronically in the DC Register at http://dcregs.dc.gov/Gateway/NoticeHome.aspx?noticeid=6450905.

The mission of the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is to enhance the quality of life for District residents and visitors by ensuring that people, goods, and information move efficiently and safely with minimal adverse impact on residents and the environment.
