The Vision Zero Partner Network
The Vision Zero Partner Network (VZPN) is made up of a broad spectrum of partners and agency representatives who have a stake in improving traffic safety in the State of North Dakota.
VZPN members are stakeholders in the North Dakota Strategic Highway Safety Plan (SHSP) process coordinated through the North Dakota Department of Transportation (NDDOT). The SHSP identifies priority emphasis areas to reduce severe crashes resulting in fatal and serious injuries in North Dakota. TSPN stakeholders are critical to the ongoing development, implementation, and evaluation of the North Dakota SHSP.

The Vision Zero Traffic Safety Initiative
On January 18, 2018, Governor Doug Burgum, along with the ND Department of Transportation (NDDOT), ND Highway Patrol (NDHP) and ND Department of Health (NDDoH), launched Vision Zero as the state’s primary traffic safety initiative.
The goal of Vision Zero is to reduce traffic fatalities to zero in North Dakota. Each participating agency has a lead role in both educating the public and implementing state law with respect to traffic safety. Vision Zero’s mission is to establish a culture of personal responsibility behind the wheel, where motor vehicle fatalities and injuries are recognized as preventable and no longer tolerated as acceptable. This multi-agency partnership continually works toward a goal of zero motor vehicle fatalities and serious injuries on North Dakota roads.
