VIRGINIA
TOWARD
ZERO
ROADWAY DEATHS

Almost 40,000 people die annually in U.S. vehicle crashes; that shouldn’t and doesn’t have to happen.

Saving lives is the goal of the Toward Zero Deaths (TZD) initiative.

Nationally and here in the Commonwealth, most of the more than 800 yearly deaths on Virginia’s roads are caused by human error. So, we want to equip you with the tools you need to make the right, life-saving decisions while driving, as well as being Virginia’s resource for the latest, comprehensive traffic safety information.

Virginia’s TZD program is a partnership between state and local government agencies, law enforcement, non-profit organizations and universities. However, it takes everyone’s involvement and effort to save lives and prevent deaths on our roads.

Help us reach the goal of “Zero” by creating a new traffic safety culture in Virginia.
