KKAD25 has been in the Colorado Springs area for over 10 years and has been very well recieved by our citizens! In fact, the city was able to use the logo/slogan and signage as the offical neighborhood speed reduction campaign eight years ago when all neighborhood speeds were reduced to 25 mph. The organization has been very responsive to the needs of our city and I have been impressed by the innovative approaches that KKAD25 has taken to stay on top of current issues.

The Keep Kids Alive Drive 25 program has been extremely well received in the community of New Berlin WI for many years. Our citizens have embraced this program with yard signs each year. We have also used permanent street Keep Kids Alive Drive 25 signs in some of the major problem areas. As with most communities, speeding in subdivisions remains a constant problem. The signs build an awareness that neighbors are concerned and want the violators to be aware of the danger and to slow down. We also run radar sets in numerous neighborhoods in conjunction with the signs. Tom Everson has been terrific to work with and his sincere concern to remind drivers to slow down is evident when you speak with him. We appreciate all he has done for our community.

I started a Chapter in Maywood NJ, Bergen county many years ago, in memory of my Brother who was a Police Officer in Tuckerton NJ.

As a community we were able to put the KKAD25 Trash can stickers on all the recyclable cans in town. And we were able to purchase the Large signs to go around
town as well. I just wanted to make the streets a bit safer.

About 5 months into starting this, as a family we went to an event down the street from my home. When we walked home my then 4 year old decided to break away from my hand and run into the street to go to our home. We were literally across the street from my house. An SUV was driving up the street a supporter of KKAD25 and her husband was able to stop the vehicle within inches of my son's body.

I was a supporter before but that day I turned into a BELIEVER. Awareness, suttle reminders, all of this truly helps! It SAVED my son's life!

The Great!

I learned about Keep Kids Alive - Drive 25 a few years ago from a friend of mine in our home town of Forked River, New Jersey. The concept that Tom has put forth sold me on the organization immediately. There's only so much that the police and public saftey personnel can do to make sure our children and our future is protected, but by having the reminders of driving safely when children are around spread around town (via Lawn signs, garbage can stickers, etc.) reinforces the goal in "real time" and redundantly. Every time we have had signs available for folks in town, they've gone faster than hotcakes. I can't tell you how many times complete strangers have stopped me in front of my house to ask where I got my lawn sign. I'd like to see more events around Monmouth and Ocean Counties in New Jersey like the 5K I participated in in Colts Neck two years ago. KKAD25 is an organization that not only strives to keep our children safe, but also strengthens the feeling of "Community" within your town at the same time.

I am very pleased to write about Keep Kids Alive Drive 25. This program has been going strong in Edison Township, NJ for about 5 years. During which time we have focused on residential neighborhoods primarily in close proximity to schools, public buildings and parks. Our goal has been to reduce speeds of vehicles and hopefully prevent a horrific accident. Our program has ben multi-faceted, we utilize: signage along the roads, placement of a speed trailer to remind drivers of their speeds, we go door-to-door handing out literature and encouraging resident participation in the program, and finally we add additonal traffic units to run radar enforcement in the neighborhood. SPEEDS HAVE BEEN REDUCED! I would also like to thank Tom Everson and KKAD25 for their updates and assistance whenever needed. I encourage other towns to get involved to protect our most important resource, our children.

Very truly yours,
Sgt. Robert Dudash Jr.
Edison Police Department

Members of the Norfolk Panther JOOI Clubs have implemented KKAD25 in our community. We have heard countless stories about speeding and wreckless driving in residential areas where our children play. Through implementation of the program, residents feel they are making a difference and report that drivers do take notice of the yard signs. With support from KKAD25, we organized a "walk" to call attention to problems related to driving too fast where children play. We have worked with Norfolk PD, who appreciate this program for what it does to make Norfolk streets safer.

We have organized a "Walk to KKAD25" to draw attention to the program and problems related to driving too fast in residential areas. We have heard stories from people about their experiences and have been able to provide KKAD25 yard signs to help them.

I really don't know what I'd do differently. Tom Everson has done much to call attention to the problem and has supporters in communities all around the country implementing the program!

I have known Tom for many years, since the inception of his dream of the program. We have worked together in Keeping Kids Alive thru our Neighborhood Watch programs and Youth Crime Watch of Miami-Dade school initiatives. His dedication to the safety of our children is unyielding and his education program is one of the best. His community involvement has made a tremendous different in the life of man.

Tom Everson runs an amazing non-profit. I met him at the "Towards Zero Deaths" conference in Minnesota in 2008, after my husband was rear-ended and killed in a traffic accident. Not only did Tom provide support and empathy, he asked me for my story and if I would like to be involved in a new campaign targeting tail-gaters. I said yes and he created "It's Not a Race! Create Space!" to honor my husband and me. Over the last two years, he has worked tirelessly to get our new initiative off the ground and onto the back of semi-trucks throughout the country. He always keeps me current with the various organizations and grant requests he submits. We have had some success, and some disappointments. But Tom is always positive and so respectful. When the organizations has its annual run, Tom always writes to me with the news, t-shirts for the event, and how he and his family will keep James' memory with them all the time. Keep Kids Alive Drive 25 is a responsive, caring, and hard-working non-profit that I recommend to everyone I know.
