Zero Fatalities Awards Program

The Zero Fatalities Awards Program recognizes individuals and organizations who have made contributions to transportation safety in the State of Utah. The program recognizes accomplishments in the public and private sector by individuals, state and local governments, federal agencies, businesses and organizations that promote traffic safety. This program is sponsored by the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT), the Utah Department of Public Safety (UDPS) and many other traffic safety partners that are dedicated to reducing death and injury on Utah’s roadways.


  • Any individual, organization, business or government agency is eligible. The nominee must have made an outstanding effort to change the attitudes and behaviors of motorists leading to the reduction of crashes, injuries and fatalities associated with transportation in Utah.

Criteria for Selection

  • There are nine award categories for which nominations will be accepted. Award selection will be made by the Zero Fatalities Safety Summit Planning Committee. Entries will be judged for impact on the community, program effectiveness, creativity, innovation and overall dedication to the field of transportation safety. An additional award category, Outstanding Traffic Safety Program Award, recognizes one UDPS and one UDOT project or subgrantee, and is selected by Department leadership.
