South Central Minnesota Toward Zero Deaths Workshop

The goal of the South Central TZD workshop is to provide information on traffic safety issues and enhance community traffic safety programs. It provides a forum for community members and representatives of the four Es to discuss and determine short- and long-term goals to reduce fatal and serious injury crashes in South Central Minnesota.

2020 Workshop Canceled

Following guidance from state health officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to prevent further spread of COVID-19, Minnesota TZD has made the difficult decision to cancel the spring 2020 TZD Regional Workshops.

In an effort to keep up the momentum of our efforts and provide you with the resources you need, we are discussing online options for sharing information that was planned for this year's workshops. Updates will be posted here as they become available.

With questions, please contact Kristine Hernandez, statewide TZD coordinator, at or connect with your regional coordinator.
