The Destination Safe Coalition's mission is to “reduce transportation-related fatalities and serious injuries.” This effort unites federal, state, regional and local agencies to improve transportation system safety for 13 counties in the Greater Kansas City region.
The coalition is also guided by the “Toward Zero Deaths 2013–2017: Kansas City Regional Transportation Safety Blueprint,” which aims to achieve an average of 180 or fewer roadway fatalities annually between 2013 and 2017. The blueprint highlights 15 focus areas that contribute to many serious injuries and fatalities on the region’s roadways.
Please contact Aaron Bartlett to learn more about Destination Safe. Meeting information is available on the Destination Safe committee page.
