More than 35,000 people die on America’s roads every year – over 500 of those on Maryland roads. These are family, friends and neighbors – not just statistics. Every person that dies is a loss that is sudden, shocking and unpredictable.
Death and injury should not be an acceptable consequence of driving. It has never been for airlines, trains or ships. Why motor vehicles?
Many people and organizations are battling this problem on America’s roadways through policy, public health, education, enforcement and other efforts. Toward Zero Deaths is a singular strategy that unites these common efforts.
