We aim to end traffic deaths and serious injuries by 2030. The Strategic Highway Safety Plan: Target Zero explains how we’ll reach that goal.
Bringing about change
Target Zero's strategies focus on the Four "E's"
Education: Give drivers the information to make the best choices.
Enforcement: Use driver behavior data to help law-enforcement officers pinpoint locations with a high number of serious collisions.
Engineering: Use best practices to prevent or reduce the severity of collisions.
Emergency Medical Services: Provide high-quality and rapid emergency and medical response to injury collisions
The Target Zero plan includes dozens of strategies to further reduce traffic fatalities and serious injuries.
Strategies were developed using national-level research, existing pilot programs, and input from many statewide stakeholders.
Many strategies in Target Zero have proven effective, been professionally evaluated and deemed successful in Washington or in other states or countries.
