ExplanationWashington's 2013 Strategic Highway Safety Plan — known as Target Zero — has a goal of zero deaths and serious injuries from traffic-related accidents by 2030 because there is no level of injury or fatality that is acceptable.

Between 2005 and 2017, the number of fatalities on Thurston County roads decreased from 26 to 19. During the same period of time, serious injuries and non-motorist fatalities and serious injuries both increased.
