Phoenix recruits students for traffic safety committee

Posted

Phoenix wants students on board a committee to help guide an effort to reduce collisions that result in serious injuries or fatalities.

The Phoenix Street Transportation Department is recruiting students from local high schools, colleges and universities to be non-voting members of its Vision Zero Community Advisory Committee, which has a goal to reduce to zero serious injuries and fatalities by 2050.

In addition to the student members, the committee will consist of 11 voting members, who have already been appointed by Mayor Kate Gallego and the Phoenix City Council.

“The committee’s work will be better informed by including the perspectives of young drivers or road users who may also walk, bike or take public transit to get to their school campuses,” a city release stated.

Student members of the committee must be at least 17 years old and able to attend quarterly meetings.

Applications are due by Wednesday, March 15. The selection process will take place in late March 2023, with the committee’s first meeting expected to be  in April 2023.
