Toward Zero Deaths (TZD) is a statewide safety campaign based on the national strategy on highway safety intended to influence driver behavior and improve safety.  With more than 35,000 fatalities occurring on U.S. highways each year, roadway safety remains one of the most challenging issues facing Michigan, and the nation. Kim will be presenting on MDOT: Bay Region’s safety efforts to move Michigan Toward Zero Deaths.
