In 2015, the North Carolina Executive Committee for Highway Safety passed a Vision Zero resolution.
Out of that resolution, a Task Force was formed with members of the Committee and interested
stakeholders. The NC Vision Zero Task Force meets quarterly throughout the year to discuss program
efforts and learn from traffic safety researchers, organizations, and stakeholders across the state.
To eliminate traffic fatalities and serious injuries through collaborative, data-driven interventions.
The purpose of the NC Vision Zero Task Force is to eliminate deaths and serious injuries on all
modes of ground transportation using data-driven prevention strategies (with emphasis on a safe
systems approach) in collaboration with local, regional, and state partners.
To supply all safety stakeholders in North Carolina with effective resources, tools, and information,
enabling them to eliminate traffic fatalities and serious injuries.
To provide direction and mobilize resources to help communities in North Carolina work toward achieving Vision Zero in the state. The task force is one facet of a coordinated effort to create a holistic, system level approach to reducing transportation fatalities in North Carolina. The task force is being organized by the UNC Injury Prevention Research Center and the UNC Highway Safety Research Center, through a grant from the Governor’s Highway Safety Program.
