Louisiana’s Destination Zero Deaths program supports the TZD strategy of creating a safety culture at the regional and local level. Over the last 10 years, traffic-related fatalities have dropped in the State by 21.6% (966 in 2005 to 737 in 2014) and serious injuries have gone down almost 19.2% from 16,626 in 2005 to 13,433 in 2014.
Louisiana’s approach to traffic safety has reaped some successes for factors including a data-driven foundation, targeted plan, regional focus, multidisciplinary team and effective leadership. Because crashes happen locally, Louisiana adopted a regional approach by establishing nine regional safety coalitions to address problem areas at the Parish and city levels.
