KEEP KIDS ALIVE DRIVE 25® - A CALL TO ACTION!

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Margaret Mead

A non-profit organization founded in the summer of 1998, KEEP KIDS ALIVE DRIVE 25® is a traffic safety campaign targeting observance of the residential speed limit. In most towns and cities throughout the U.S. the residential speed limit is 25 mph. Thus the slogan, "KEEP KIDS ALIVE DRIVE 25®."

The mission of KEEP KIDS ALIVE DRIVE 25® is to change the way we drive in on neighborhood streets, and beyond. Our goal is to put an end to deaths and injuries caused by speeding and distracted driving on our nation’s roads. We do so by educating and actively engaging citizens in a common commitment to create safer streets for the benefit of all, beginning right in our own neighborhood. No one wants to be behind the wheel and hit someone. Since speeders are 3 times more likely to be in a crash (AAA) and account for 33% of motor vehicle deaths, observing the speed limit is a great way to significantly reduce crashes, injuries, and deaths.

It’s easy to get started right in your own community. Click "Get Started" for information on how to begin in your community. You can also click on "State Contacts" to find existing community contacts in your state. You can also e-mail or call and we’ll advise you on the best way to get started. KEEP KIDS ALIVE DRIVE 25® is available for on-site consultation and assistance in launching your own local campaign.

“We wish you all the best as you care for your own children as well as all pedestrians in your neighborhood. Remember,
KEEP KIDS ALIVE DRIVE 25® It’s about Kids! It’s about Safety!
It’s about Caring! It’s about Time!®”

 

Yours in safety,
