AAMVA strives to provide its members with the tools and information they need to build programs and processes that will help them to achieve their highway safety goals. We are privileged to have strong working relationships with other like-minded organizations who also strive to reduce highway safety fatalities and injuries.
In October 2016, the National Safety Council, in partnership with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Federal Highway Administration and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, announced the Road to Zero initiative. Its aim: To eliminate traffic fatalities within 30 years.
The initiative builds on the national Behavioral Change in Traffic Safety conference held earlier this year. Road to Zero expands the discussion to include not only representatives of roadway, behavioral and vehicle safety, but also nonprofit groups, public health officials and technology companies – dozens of organizations working together to develop a coordinated approach to highway safety. In the near term, the coalition will examine and promote current behavior-change strategies and improve their effectiveness. Long-term, the coalition will enlist the RAND Corporation to help develop a scenario on how a human-vehicle-roadway system could be designed to optimize safety.

The Most Wanted List represents the NTSB's advocacy priorities. It is designed to increase awareness of, and support for, the most critical changes needed to reduce transportation accidents and save lives.
In 2009, multiple traffic safety stakeholders began the dialogue toward creating a national strategic highway safety plan at a workshop in Savannah, Georgia. The majority of participants expressed that there should be a highway safety vision to which the nation aspires, even if at that point in the process it was not clear how or when it could be realized. This group concluded that the elimination of highway deaths is the appropriate goal, as even one death is unacceptable. With this input from over 70 workshop participants and further discussions with the Steering Committee following the workshop, the name of this effort became “Toward Zero Deaths: A National Strategy on Highway Safety.”
MyCarDoesWhat.org is a national campaign to help educate drivers on new vehicle safety technologies designed to help prevent crashes. These technologies range from increasing the stability and control of cars to providing warnings about crash threats to automatically intervening to avoid or reduce the severity of a crash.
TrafficSafetyMarketing.Gov is the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration communications resource for States, partner organizations, and highway safety professionals. The site was developed as a one-stop-shop for the latest communications news, campaign materials, and marketing techniques.
Find information, promotional materials and marketing tools for national safety campaigns such as distracted driving, drunk driving, motorcycle safety, older drivers, to name only a few.
This Website is maintained by the USDOT's Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office (ITS JPO). The ITS JPO conducts workshops and public meetings on technical and policy issues related to the Connected Vehicle Research Program.
Safercar.gov focuses on safety in and around vehicles. Information on the site is organized based on the following target audiences: vehicle shoppers, vehicle owners, vehicle manufacturers, and parents.
The Clearinghouse for Older Road User Safety (ChORUS) is a collaborative project of the Roadway Safety Foundation and two leading information technology developers, Syneren Technologies and Bonzzu. Support is provided by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
ChORUS serves as a centralized, user-friendly, and dynamic source of information pertaining to highway safety for aging drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and cyclists. Built as a comprehensive resource, it covers all three major components of highway safety: safe roadways, safe road users, and safe vehicles.
Distraction.gov is your resource for learning more about distracted driving. Information on the site is segmented out based on the following target audiences: Teens, parents, educators, employers, community groups.
