Jay Blazek Crossley is Executive Director of Houston Tomorrow, Co-Chair of the Houston Coalition for Complete Streets, and Chair of the Houston - Galveston Area Council Pedestrian and Bicyclist Subcommittee. He has been pushing for a Vision Zero for the City of Houston, starting with this Op Ed, but believes the region as a whole should follow the City of Houston down the path of safe streets.

Cities across the country are adopting Vision Zero Action Plans to bring all traffic deaths to zero. Too many Houstonians are dying while using our transportation system - most of them while riding in cars. It is time for the governments of the Houston region to take steps across various departments to make our streets safe for all Houstonians.
Livable Houston meetings take place on the fourth Wednesday of every month from noon to 1:30 pm and are free and open to the public.
