Because auto accidents killed 800 people in South Carolina last year and around 33,000 in the US, the South Carolina Highway Patrol is targeting families to reach their goal of zero highway deaths for the next year.
We may see accidents on the side of the road, but until we visualize these injuries and deaths happening to our families, it is easy to feel far removed.
The Target Zero Campaign wants to reduce traffic accident fatalities and hopes by talking to families directly, people will be more aware on the road. They want people to realize the dangers on the road and take extra caution when traveling.
Look out for other drivers and make smart and safe decisions. Each safe decision can reduce the chances of being involved in an auto accident.
