Zero In Wisconsin


560 people died on Wisconsin roads in 2015.

Some deaths were caused by speeding while others were a result of drunk driving, or not wearing a seat belt. Tragically, these deaths affect many lives and cause great pain to thousands of people throughout the state. Fortunately, you can help change that number.

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation and our traffic safety partners have launched the Zero In Wisconsin campaign to help save lives and reduce the number of traffic deaths annually in Wisconsin.

In Wisconsin, our ZERO VISION means that any preventable traffic death is one too many. By staying within the speed limit, being sober behind the wheel, and buckling up, you can do simple things that can turn nearly 500 annual deaths into zero.

April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month


A hairbrush, a hamburger and a cellphone—all are harmless except when you’re behind the wheel of a vehicle. When drivers comb their hair while looking in the rearview mirror, eat a meal, or text message while driving, they are in fact distracted and in danger of causing a crash or failing to avoid one. To remind people that they must give driving their undivided attention, Congress has designated April as National Distracted Driving Awareness Month.
