Goal: To heighten consciousness about what people can do and what official
steps they should take to reduce transportation fatalities and accidents on
American highways, roads, and streets by calling attention to reducing
fatalities on one specific day, and also with other traffic safety events held
during the year.
"How do we Put the Brakes on Fatalities? One safe choice at a time."
Anthony Foxx, US Secretary of Transportation
Texting while driving kills more teens than drunk driving.
