The traffic death rate for Native Americans in Washington is 3 times the rate for non-Native Americans.
We work with tribal governments and state agencies to reduce the high rate of traffic fatalities and serious injuries for Native Americans. Our work is carried out under the Centennial Accord.
Reduce impaired driving and speeding
We produced Protecting Our Future: Reducing Traffic Fatalities on Native Lands to raise awareness of the major causes of the high traffic death rate.
Support traffic safety projects for tribal communities
We provide grants for traffic safety projects in local tribal communities.
