Zero Deaths – Saving Lives through a Safety Culture and a Safe System

National Efforts

Road to Zero – The FHWA, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMSCA) are working with the National Safety Council (NSC) on this national road safety leadership initiative. This initiative involves a national coalition working together to develop a coordinated approach to reaching zero deaths within the next 30 years.

National Strategy on Highway Safety Toward Zero Deaths – Along with NHTSA and FMCSA, FHWA provided technical support to a group of organizations that represent professionals with an active role in highway safety, led by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials. This group developed the National Strategy, which is an overarching and common vision that drives and focuses collective efforts to eliminate injuries and fatalities on America's roads.

Vision Zero Network – This collaborative campaign works with communities to reach the goal of Vision Zero while increasing safe, healthy, and equitable mobility for all. The FHWA coordinates with the Vision Zero Network to provide assistance to these communities.

ITE Vision Zero – The Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) established the Vision Zero Task Force to advance the goals of the Vision Zero and Toward Zero Deaths movements. The ITE and FHWA have a long tradition of working together on a range of initiatives, including those related to zero deaths.
