Remember Kyle - Keep Kids Alive on Halloween!

Dear Friends in Safety,

This week our “Speed-Reader” is dedicated to the life of Kyle Foster, a 10 year-old who died as a result of being hit by a neighbor while crossing the street on Halloween night in 2003. Please remember to “Be Aware! Drive With Care®” on each and every roadway this October 31st -one pf the most dangerous nights for children when it comes to traffic incidents.

Kyle Foster, Mesquite, Texas
Our actions behind the wheel can make all the difference – both for those around us and for ourselves as well. No one wants to be the person who hits another person. Let’s make sure our driving behaviors insure the safety of all we encounter on the road.
