Review for Keep Kids Alive Drive 25, Omaha, NE, USA
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!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
That it saved my son's life. To make people aware of the dangers of speeding on residential streets.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Have it in every town as well as Keep Kids Alive Drive 25 Speed Zones. Doubling or Tripling the fines
