More than 500 people die on Maryland roads every year. These are all 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?

That's why so many are working Toward Zero Deaths on America's roadways through policy, public health, education, enforcement and other efforts.

One of the most dangerous problems on our roads today -- a factor in an estimated one-third of all crashes, injuries, and fatalities in Maryland.
