Neighborhood Traffic Safety

Posted in: Cherry Creek Vista South
Hello from Omaha!

During the past year I have e-mailed information about our new traffic safety campaign, Keep Kids Alive Drive 25?™, to city and county officials, as well as neighborhood associations, watch groups, school districts and PTAs throughout the United States. This communication is a follow-up to keep community leaders up to date with how Keep Kids Alive Drive 25?™ continues to grow.

Keep Kids Alive Drive 25?™ is designed to encourage motorists to observe the residential speed limit. In most towns and cities across the U.S., the residential limit is 25 mph. Thus the slogan, "Keep Kids Alive Drive 25?™." After one year Keep Kids Alive Drive 25?™ has grown into a campaign with contacts working on developing local initiatives in over 200 cities and towns representing 41 states. We are working to grow Keep Kids Alive Drive 25?™ into a nationally recognized campaign that simply calls all drivers to slow down in our neighborhoods for our kids' sake.

To date Keep Kids Alive Drive 25?™ has developed into community initiatives in Columbus, OH, Tucson, AZ, Tinton Falls, NJ, Bollingbrook, IL, Florence, AL, San Antonio, TX, Lynchburg, VA, Wichita, KS, Omaha, NE, Waterloo, NE, Adams, NE, Arapahoe, NE, Springfield, NE, Kirkland, WA, St. Petersburg, FL, and Danville, CA. Plans are on the board to adopt Keep Kids Alive Drive 25?™ in Providence, RI, Phoenix, AZ, Manhattan Beach, CA, Milpitas, CA, Westminster, CO, Maumelle, AR, Toledo, OH, Reno, NV, Ottawa County, MI, Oceanside, CA, Glendora, CA, Novi, MI, Kalamazoo, MI, San Mateo, CA, Lincoln, NE, Carteret, NJ, Centerville, OH, Hastings, NE, and Medina, OH. We are also developing a new initiative that targets neighborhoods with 20mph speed limits.

In the majority of cities and towns, our campaign has taken root through the efforts of local law enforcement agencies, city officials (councils, mayors, traffic engineers), neighborhood associations and watch groups, and pedestrian safety groups.

You can find more information on our web site, www.keepkidsalive.com. If you would be interested in helping get the word out about Keep Kids Alive Drive 25?™ to neighborhoods throughout your community, I would welcome the opportunity to hear from you. You can contact me at 402-334-1391 or at eversont@gateway.net. We also welcome web site links to help get the word out.

Thanks for your consideration.
