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® educates motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists to practice behaviors that keep us all safe on and along roadways.
The mission of KEEP KIDS ALIVE DRIVE 25® is to make streets safer for all who walk, cycle, play, drive, and ride. Our goal is to put an end to deaths and injuries caused by all manner of unsafe driving behaviors. 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, yet our behaviors can lead to just such incidents. Check out "Practice the Better" on the KKAD25 Blog for examples of safe driving behaviors we can practice each time we get behind the wheel.
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 e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 402-334-1391 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.
