Zero Deadly Traffic Accidents the Goal in Tennessee
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Zero deadly accidents is the goal the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security and Tennessee Highway Patrol are trying to achieve. It’s called “Drive to Zero Fatalities”, and it’s a nationwide campaign to reduce traffic fatalities by 15 percent this year. The “Drive to Zero Fatalities” campaign is a data-driven effort that will focus on several traffic safety enforcement goals, specifically, seat belt usage, impaired and distracted driving and speeding. It will also include enforcement actions against unsafe driving behaviors of large truck and bus operators. This national effort was initiated by the International Association of Chiefs of Police.
