Be DelAWARE Safety Campaign

BeDelAWARE Banner


In 2023, The DelDOT Leadership Academy was tasked with creating a new safety awareness campaign to connect with the public after 2022 saw a near record number of fatalities on Delaware roads. The result of this effort by this group of DelDOT employees is the Be DelAWARE campaign. Safety should be everyone’s priority and by being DelAWARE we can ensure lives are not tragically lost on our roads.


“Toward Zero Deaths” is a national strategy on highway safety to advocate for eliminating serious injuries and deaths on our nation’s roadways, and that one death on our nation’s roadways is too many, and we must all work together to bring the annual number of roadway deaths down to zero.
