A Goal We Can All Live With

Zero Fatalities – sounds like an impossible goal unless you think about it one person or one crash at a time.  A recent study showed 99 percent of  crashes are caused by human error. Had each person causing a crash changed one or more behaviors, that crash would have been avoided.  Crashes, including those causing fatalities, are not inevitable. We’ve identified some of the most dangerous behaviors that are killing people on Iowa’s roads. They are speeding, driving impaired, driving distracted, driving drowsy, and not buckling up.

We don’t have to convince people that zero fatalities is a good goal. Everyone already has that goal for themselves and their loved ones. If every family focused on these five behaviors, together we can reach zero fatalities.
