Vision Zero

The Apex Town Council adopted Vision Zero Apex in July 2020 as a comprehensive and holistic approach to achieving the goal of zero fatalities on Apex roadways.

As part of its Vision Zero plan, the Town of Apex will use a "Five E Approach" to eliminate fatalities and serious injuries on our streets:

  • Engineering
  • Education
  • Encouragement
  • Enforcement
  • Evaluation

Get Involved

Have you noticed an area in town that presents a safety concern for pedestrians, bicyclists, or vehicles? We rely on members of our community to report your concerns that can bring us closer to Vision Zero.
