Tom Emerson is an awesome man. He had the insight of such a simple concept-lower the speed limit to 25mph through neighborhoods- and the fortitude to promote this concept and organization with his strong convictions. Tom started this organization after realizing how fast people where driving through subdivisions. He wanted to be proactive about getting his message out to the public. Tom did not start this organization because he lost a child. Tom Everson started this organization to help get this message out- Keep Kids Alive Drive 25- something every driver should remember.
KKAD 25 is a great organization with lots of information and statistics every driver should be aware of. In today's society everyone is always in such a hurry. If only the driver of the car that killed Justin would have been driving 5 mph slower the chances of Justin's survival would have been greatly increased. Please don't let the few seconds you save by speeding be the last 2 seconds of someone's life.
