DID YOU KNOW?
Approximately 6,500 pedestrians and 900 bicyclists are killed each year as a result of collisions with motor vehicles. 48% of these traffic collisions are hit and run crimes.
YOU CAN HELP CHANGE THIS.
Your tax deductible donation to SAFE will support our efforts to:
Support Sensible Legislation: This is aimed not only at discouraging people from committing hit and run crimes but preventing crashes (due to distracted driving, drunk and drugged driving, etc.) from happening in the first place.
Produce Media and Broad Awareness Campaigns: These tackle not only hit and run crimes but issues such as distracted driving, impaired driving (drugs and alcohol) and increasing awareness of pedestrians and bicyclists. This includes bus ads, billboards, news media, social media and PSA’s.
Provide Direct Education Through Schools: This includes workshops, assemblies, booths at school events and practical drills with students help to directly educate young minds on the importance of driving, walking and cycling safety.
Implement Vision Zero: a program to eliminate traffic deaths and injuries on our streets by 2025.
Support Victims of Traffic Collisions: the first program of its kind, SAFE Support is a support group for those who have been affected by traffic collisions, especially in those critical few days and weeks after the collision occurs. This new program is being developed over the next year.
And much more!
