Road to Zero Coalition releases plan to reduce road deaths

Motor vehicle accidents in California and around the country claim more than 100 lives every day, but that figure would be reduced to zero by 2050 if a coalition of road safety groups is able to reach its goal. The Road to Zero Coalition was formed by the National Safety Council after road deaths surged alarmingly in both 2015 and 2016, and it is supported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Federal Highway Administration, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and 16 road safety organizations.

The Road to Zero Coalition released a report on April 22 that contained details about how the lofty goal of eliminating road deaths entirely within a few decades could be accomplished. The group says that it will urge lawmakers to pass tougher seat belt laws and encourage police departments to vigorously enforce speed limits as these measures have been extremely effective at reducing catastrophic accident injuries and fatalities.

Auto manufacturers are doing their part to improve road safety by introducing sophisticated autonomous and semi-autonomous systems that are designed to held drivers avoid rather than survive motor vehicle accidents, and most safety experts believe that this technology will provide the key to meeting the Road to Zero Coalition's goal. The group says that it will also support public information campaigns designed to foster a culture of safety and warn drivers of the possibly deadly consequences of behaving recklessly behind the wheel.

The family members of individuals killed in automobile accidents may pursue civil remedies when their loved ones have died as the result of negligent behavior. These families might be left financially vulnerable by the loss of a breadwinner's paycheck. Experienced personal injury attorneys may seek compensation for the loss of this financial support as well as unexpected expenses such as medical bills and funeral costs.
