Drive to Zero is the theme Clackamas County has embraced to reduce injuries and fatalities on our roadways. The campaign calls for a 50% reduction in fatal and serious injury crashes by 2022. Based on the 2005-2009 average number of fatalities and serious injuries due to crashes, this corresponds to saving 16 lives and preventing 125 serious injuries annually at the completion of the program. This could be someone you know. Over 90% of crashes have human behavior as a contributing factor. Our call to action is to educate, outreach and involve everyone with what they can do to keep our roads safe.

The 2014 Posters and Coasters - Safe Driving Media Contest was an overwhelming success with nearly 100 entries from local high school students. Melody Xu from Lake Oswego High School won top honors for her "Keep Your Eyes on the Road" poster. We would like to outreach posters in the community, if you have ideas on how to spread the word contact staff at SafeCommunities@Clackamas.us
