Question: I keep hearing you talking about four "E's" when it comes to traffic safety issues, and I have even heard you talk about a fifth "E." What are they?


Answer: The Four E's are critical components to traffic safety: education, enforcement, EMS and engineering.

The Four E's are a product of the statewide Toward Zero Deaths (TZD) program, which is the umbrella initiative of all Minnesota traffic safety projects.
