NC Vision Zero Communities

Communities across the state are working tirelessly to re-envision their transportation safety work through Vision Zero and a Safe System approach. They regularly and generously provide their time and energy to serve their communities and share lessons learned and resources to help neighboring communities across the state.


ITRE (Institute for Transportation Research and Education)

Headquartered at North Carolina State University, the ITRE team develops, hosts, and maintains the NCVZ website, crash analytic dashboards, materials for road safety media campaigns, and the NC Traffic Safety Conference to support data-informed Vision Zero action plans.


UNC (University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill)

Through a model of support, a cross-disciplinary team from the UNC Injury Prevention Research Center, UNC Highway Safety Research Center, the Collaborative Sciences Center for Road Safety, UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health, and the NC Institute for Public Health provide technical assistance to Vision Zero communities across the state.


NC Governor’s Highway Safety Program

Dedicated to reducing the numbers of traffic crashes and fatalities in NC, the Governor’s Highway Safety Program promotes efforts to reduce traffic crashes in North Carolina and promotes highway safety awareness through a variety of grants and safe-driving initiatives. The NC Governor’s Highway Safety Program funds the UNC and ITRE technical assistance projects that support Vision Zero in North Carolina.

In 2022, 206 motorcyclists were killed and another 2,869 were injured on North Carolina roads (NCDOT).
