The WTSC supports a network of 17 Target Zero Managers (TZMs) throughout the state (shown in the map below). TZMs are actively involved in the coordination and fiscal management of many of the WTSC’s grant-funded projects. They coordinate all High Visibility patrols including DUI Holiday, Click It or Ticket, Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, and On the Road, Off the Phone Campaigns.
In addition, TZMs manage other projects such as Target Zero Teams, speed reduction projects, and pedestrian safety zone projects. Other activities include coordinating media campaigns, monitoring local data to identify emerging trends, leading planning and outreach efforts for the local traffic safety coalition, and evaluating performance data from enforcement activities. Through utilization of the TZM network, the WTSC is able to maximize the reach of these programs to the local communities.
Each WTSC region has at least one traffic safety task force. These task forces meet at least quarterly throughout the year. They review traffic safety issues in their region and make decisions about programming. The regional TZM leads these task forces, which include a mix of law enforcement and other traffic safety stakeholders.
