This event is organized by the Massachusetts Vision Zero Coalition.
#CrashNotAccident Awareness Campaign
A crucial component of Vision Zero is directly improving the streets where crashes are taking place. To draw attention to these places and to remember those who have died on our streets, the Massachusetts Vision Zero Coalition is placing plastic cut-outs representing traffic fatalities throughout the Boston area in the days leading up to the World Day of Remembrance 2016.
