Drive to Zero is all about reducing injuries and fatalities on our roadways. Our goal is a 50% reduction in fatal and serious injury crashes by 2022. Based on recent data this could save 16 lives and prevent 125 serious injuries every year.
This could be someone you know. Over 90% of crashes have human behavior as a contributing factor.
While driver behavior is a contributing factor in more than 90% of the primary cause of most crashes, roads are also a factor in nearly 25% of crashes. That's why it's vital to both promote safe driving habits and maintain our roads. We'll keep the roads in shape; you help keep them safe.
