1 Southeast Minnesota Toward Zero Deaths Program Nelrae Succio, Mn/DOT District Engineer & Lt. Randy Slinger, Minnesota State Patrol

2 Toward Zero Deaths or Vision Zero

3 Global Crisis  Economic cost of $100 billion a year  By 2015, traffic crashes will be the leading cause of death or disability for children age 5 and above  1.3 million per year killed on the world’s roads  50 million are injured

4 United Nations Proclamation Proclaims the period as the Decade of Action for Road Safety, 2. Proclaims the period as the Decade of Action for Road Safety, with a goal to stabilize and then reduce the forecast level of road traffic fatalities around the world by increasing activities conducted at the national, regional and global levels;
