The Toward Zero Deaths (TZD) approach is based on the belief that even one traffic-related death on our roads is unacceptable. Minnesota TZD is the state’s cornerstone traffic safety program, employing an interdisciplinary approach to reducing traffic crashes, injuries, and deaths on Minnesota roads.
Douglas County is a partner in Minnesota TZD. You too can become a part of local traffic safety efforts, led by concerned community members and professionals. Contact Us on how to get involved.

In partnership with the Statewide Health Improvement Program (SHIP) and Blue Cross Blue Shield MN, we have launched a STREET SMART campaign to promote safe walking, biking and driving on our roads. The goal of the project is to grab attention of the public with 4 strong messages to foster more active, healthy lifestyles while raising awareness that safety is still the number one priority on our roads, paths and sidewalks.
To highlight the importance of the campaign to the safety of local residents and vibrancy of the community, STREET SMART images will feature some of our own "hometown families" and appear on billboards, posters, and other high-traffic areas.
