Keep Kids Alive Drive 25
February 25, 2011

Traffic safety seems to be a thing of the past. Texting, talking, reading, writing and not paying attention to driving are now the standard. Speed limits are routinely ignored, tailgating is the new norm, as is passing in no-passing zones, not dimming your brights, and acting as if nothing bad will ever happen.

Those of us who believe in traffic law, and have advocated in our communities for safer driving, have been disappointed when local law enforcement and governing bodies shrug it all off . Tickets are only written for 10 MPH or ABOVE the speed limit. Traffic calming is poo-pooed. our communities suffer, with no recourse.

Some people never learn, until there is a dire consequence.

KKAD 25 has stepped in to fill the void. Helping to advocate for victims and their families, to support local grass-roots traffic safety actions, and to provide the tools for the average citizen to fight back against those who really can't see beyond their own narrow, irreponsible actions.

This is what a non-profit is supposed to do. It is about being accessible, providing important information and making itself available to provide seminars, training and more for those who advocate for safe roadways, and also for vicitms and their families.

For all they do, KKAD 25 should be given accolades. They are impacting the lives of EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US in a positive manner, whether we know it or not. It might be that that driver who would have hit you yesterday, slowed down because they learned a lesson from a KKAD 25 roadside, or heard a community presentation on safe driving, or learned of a fundraiser in the memory of a deceased pedestrian. It really does matter. It really is effective. Even making one person stop and think before driving is a life or two potentially saved.

I attended a seminar in NJ about 10 years ago, where KKAD 25 was instrumental in encouraging law enforcement in our communities to take these issues seriously, set up neighborhood traffic monitoring, and provide the community with resources to stop dangerous drivers.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

participation in a township wide traffic study indentfying the most dangerous residential streets and allocating resources for safety improvements.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

NONE. they are doing a very good job. Stay grassroots, keep it real.

MY ROLE:
General Member of the Public & Bringing their message to my former community and advocating for implementation of road calming, signs and detterents, with the support of KKAD 25.
