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.

The Road to ZERO FATALITIES

We can reach our ultimate goal and it all starts by learning to avoid the 5 deadly driving behaviors.

PARENT NIGHT WEBINARS

Parent involvement is key to preventing crashes among new drivers. In order to help parents make a positive impact on their teen’s learning experience, we created Zero Fatalities Parent Nights. For more than a decade, parents have given overwhelmingly positive reviews to these 60-minute presentations addressing some of the top behaviors teen drivers need to know. They help teens establish safe driving habits and remind parents to be better examples, so we can all reach our goal of Zero Fatalities.

Previously, these presentations have been in-school presentations, but to accommodate schools during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have online options available for those who are not able to meet in large groups.

Zero Fatalities Parent Night webinars are now available every Monday and Wednesday evenings. Once you’ve chosen the date that works for parents and teens to view the live video conference together, click the date to register and a confirmation and a password will be sent to your email. We recommend adding this appointment to your calendar.

When the presentation ends, a survey link will appear where you will input your student’s name and school. This information is required in order to receive credit for attending the presentation. This report will be given to the driver ed teacher.

Consider the following resources to help you prepare your teen for driving:

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.
