Destination Safe

A coalition to reduce transportation-related fatalities and serious injuries

The Destination Safe Coalition unites federal, state, regional and local agencies to improve transportation system safety for 13 counties in Greater Kansas City. 

The Coalition's mission is to reduce transportation-related fatalities and serious injuries. It is governed by a committee with representatives from local, regional, state and federal agencies, emergency response, law enforcement, public health and nonprofit groups dedicated to transportation safety.

Destination Safe has set a goal of achieving an average of 180 or fewer roadway fatalities annually over the period of its current safety plan. 

Safety data

One important step to reducing fatalities and serious injuries is to examine data in order to identify specific challenges then find solutions to save lives. The Destination Safe Crash Data Dashboard is intended to help advocates and safety professionals understand traffic crashes throughout the region. With three tabs, Destination Safe, Crash Data by Time Period, and Map View, the data can be isolated by priority, county, year and more. 

Partners 

Transportation safety includes a diverse range of stakeholders involved in education, engineering, enforcement and emergency response. This includes organizations such as:

  • Area hospitals.
  • Health departments.
  • State and local transportation divisions.
  • Nonprofit organizations and businesses.
  • Law enforcement agencies at the local, county and state levels.
