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.

These include bus ads, billboards, news media, social media and PSA’s made through our amazing Streets, Art, SAFE program.
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 through our "SAFE Kids" program.
Implement Vision Zero: a program to eliminate traffic deaths and injuries on our streets by 2025. SAFE is working with the city on community engagement projects, street safety project implementation and to help memorialize those lost on our streets to traffic collisions.
Support Victims of Traffic Collisions: the first program of its kind, SAFE Support is a support system for those who have been affected by traffic collisions, especially in those critical few days and weeks after the collision occurs. This program is currently supported in over 15 local trauma centers and hospitals and with your help, can move to cover the whole Southland.
