Vision Zero is one of three sub-committees of the Bike Walk Knoxville Advisory Committee. The Vision Zero committee is focused on working with the Knoxville city government and other community partners to make Knoxville the first Vision Zero city in Tennessee! Learn more about our work on Vision Zero here.
Vision Zero starts with the ethical belief that everyone has the right to move safely in their communities, and that system designers and policy makers share the responsibility to ensure safe systems for travel.
We are calling on you to join our efforts in ending traffic fatalities and severe injuries, while increasing safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all. Please join us in supporting a future with zero road deaths and injuries in Knoxville, TN by signing our Vision Zero petition!
Bryan Hill, Chair
Bryan is a community planner, and has lived in Knoxville for three years. He has worked with communities across the U.S. to develop strategies to develop their economies and protect their natural resources. In addition to his role as a planner, Bryan has given hundreds of hours to public service projects. Since moving to Knoxville, he has been deeply involved with Bike Walk Knoxville’s Advisory Committee, the Broadway Corridor Task Force, the UpTown North committee and local neighborhood associations.
In 2007, Bryan was commuting home on his bicycle when he was struck from behind by an intoxicated driver going 35 miles per hour. The collision shattered the tibia in Bryan’s right leg and resulted in severe injuries and a dramatic loss of blood. After several surgeries and months of recovery, Bryan was able to walk again and over the course of the next year got back on his bike. The situation helped transform Bryan into an amazing activist for the Vision Zero cause, and we are so thankful to have him as the Chair of our Vision Zero Committee.
