What's Driving You Mad? Keep Kids Alive!

When it comes to driving, what gets the anger inside you brewing and spewing inside you? Is it people who speed, text, tailgate, don't buckle up, run stop signs and stop lights, fail to signal lane changes or turns?

Whatever is it that drives you mad, what can you do about it?

Realistically we begin by looking at the behaviors we can control - our own. As individuals we can model behaviors, including observing the speed limit, staying off the cell phone, practicing safe space management, buckling up, stopping at stop signs and lights, and signalling our lane changes and turns.

Beyond this, we can work with and through neighborhood organizations and watch groups, school PTAs/PTOs, safety committees through the workplace, and alongside local law enforcement, public works, and civic leaders to create "Keep Kids Alive Drive 25" communities that work to engage everyone in creating safer roadways for the benefit of everyone.

Get started today by visiting KKAD25 Start-up. The life you save might well be your own or that of a loved one. Don't delay, start today at KKAD25 Start-up.
