When it comes to your friends and family, Zero Fatalities is the only acceptable number

Zero Fatalities is all about eliminating fatalities on our roadways. Some people may think zero is an impossible goal, but when it comes to your life, or the lives of your friends and family, what other number would be acceptable? We’re aiming for Zero Fatalities because everyone matters. So start by saving your own life and join us on the road to Zero Fatalities today.

It’s easy to ignore a statistic, but when it comes to your own life, or the life of a loved one, even one fatality is too many. In order to teach the importance of Zero, and how we can get there, we host several events throughout the year with parents and students both welcome.

We encourage parents and teens to watch these videos together. Our hope is that it will spark a discussion on how to be better drivers, be a good example and set rules that everyone can agree on.

After you’ve watched all 6 Parent Night Videos, please complete the form to get credit for watching the Zero Fatalities Parent Presentation.

We would love your feedback

Parents, thank you for taking the time to watch the parent night with your teen. We want to make the presentation as effective and informative as possible and would love your thoughts. Please answer the questions below:

Teen Driving Agreement & Parent Guide

Remember, once your teen driver is fully licensed doesn’t mean they are suddenly an expert when it comes to driving. There is still a lot of learning that needs to be done. Research by the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia shows that there is less crash risk when parents of newly licensed teens set initial limitations on driving privileges.

Use the Parent-Teen Driving Agreement as a guide to set clear rules when your teen is driving without adult supervision. Feel free to change the agreement in any way to meet your household needs. When your teen is involved in setting these rules, they are more likely to follow them.

Optional Parent Night Assignment

Teachers, here is an optional Parent Night assignment you can use. Have your students save it to their computer, discuss with their parents, fill in their answers, and turn it in to you.

Truck Smart Presentation

Did you know that approximately ¼ of all vehicles on Utah roads are large trucks? Nationally, over 75 percent of auto vs. truck crashes are caused by negligent driving on the part of the auto driver. By understanding just how massive these trucks are, how large their blind spots are, and how much room they need to operate and come to a stop, our roads and highways can be a much safer place for everyone.

Educational Videos

As you know, we have plenty of educational videos on traffic safety. Those videos are found on the Zero Fatalities YouTube Channel here.
