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.”
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.
