Mission, Vision and Goals

Eliminating deaths on New Hampshire roadways is an important vision and the driving force behind the work of the New Hampshire Driving Toward Zero (NHDTZ) Coalition. It is also an important vision for all who travel on New Hampshire's roadways-by car, motorcycle, truck, bicycle, or even on foot-day and night under all types of weather conditions.

The NHDTZ's mission is to create a safety culture where even one roadway fatality is one too many. Zero fatalities is the only acceptable number and of course, the only number we can ALL LIVE with.

The New Hampshire Driving Toward Zero Program aligns with the Toward Zero Deaths: A National Strategy on Highway Safety program that began in 2009 as a data-driven effort focusing on identifying and creating opportunities for changing American culture as it relates to highway safety.
