Mission Statement

The mission of Keep Kids Alive Drive 25® is to end all deaths and injuries caused by speeding on all roadways. Our target is zero deaths, zero injuries. To do less is to accept and tolerate deaths and injuries to loved ones; daughters, sons, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and friends. To accomplish our mission we work to educate and actively engage citizens throughout the United States in a common commitment to create safer streets in neighborhoods, and beyond, for the benefit of all. This includes pedestrians, cyclists, children-at-play, motorists and their passengers. We work with and through neighborhood groups, law enforcement, public health agencies, schools, city/county/state government, public works, businesses, safety organizations, and any and all civic organizations committed to creating safe roadways. Another key component of our mission is support for families who have experienced the death of a child due to a traffic incident.

Thousands of local civic leaders and volunteers have banded together to create safer neighborhood streets for the benefit of us all.

"Keep Kids Alive Drive 25 is the only organization of its kind in the United States. Our unique approach to educating and engaging citizens in creating safer roadway environments in neighborhoods, and beyond, works to build ownership among residents in taking responsibility for our actions behind the wheel, as passengers, as pedestrians, as cyclists, and as parents. It takes cooperation and collaboration between public entities, private organizations, and citizens to make a difference that reduces speeds, traffic incidents, injuries, and deaths. Keep Kids Alive Drive 25 is privileged to be a partner in this endeavor."
