DES MOINES, Iowa – Governor Branstad has launched a new effort to reduce the number of deaths on the roads.

The program is called “Zero Fatalities” and is supported by the departments of transportation, health and public safety.

“Having no traffic fatalities on Iowa roads may sound like an unattainable goal but when you think about the goal you have for your family it’s always going to be zero fatalities,” Governor Branstad said.

The program encourages Iowans to slow down, drive sober, focus on the road, stay alert and buckle up.

So far there have been 127 fatalities this year.

The initiative is part of a larger campaign that includes three other states: Arizona, Nevada and Utah.

    A true hypocrite at his best. This goal applies to everyone but himself, his driver and his son. Does it get any more sickening than this? Notice Big Bird being the bobble head that she is.

  • Just a Mom

    Terry, too bad we can’t bring back the people your son killed. O wait, you don’t talk about that , do you? And I believe it was all his fault.

  • Troy Hendrickson

    zero road deaths without significant changes to alcohol laws, drunk driving laws and raising taxes on alcohol isn’t possible, and since Iowa subsidizes and promotes the most dangerous drug in the state, well, more hot air from Branstad
