On Tues., Feb. 25, state Senator Brad Hoylman will host “Counting Down to ‘Vision Zero,’ ” a Pedestrian and Traffic Safety Town Hall on “Vision Zero,” Mayor de Blasio’s plan to eliminate traffic fatalities within a decade.

Representatives of the Mayor’s Office, the New York Police Department and Department of Transportation will attend to address how pedestrians, cyclists and motorists can co-exist more safely on the streets. There will also be representatives from advocacy organizations Transportation Alternatives and CHEKPEDS, who will address the efforts necessary to make the mayor’s vision a reality.

Hoylman’s town hall comes on the heels of reports that pedestrian deaths in New York City are on pace to surpass homicides this year and that 54 percent of all collision fatalities in the city include pedestrians.

The town hall will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, 524 W. 59th St. (between 10th and 11th Aves.), sixth floor.

The event’s co-sponsors include Congressmembers Carolyn Maloney and Jerrold Nadler; Borough President Gale Brewer; state Senators Liz Krueger, Jose Serrano and Daniel Squadron; Assemblymembers Deborah Glick, Richard Gottfried, Brian Kavanagh, Dan Quart and Linda Rosenthal; City Councilmembers Dan Garodnick, Corey Johnson, Mark Levine, Rosie Mendez and Helen Rosenthal, and Manhattan Community Boards 2 through 7.
