Each year 2.9 million people are injured and more than 37,000 people die nationwide due to car accidents; 63 percent of those who die are not wearing a seat belt. For every one percent increase in seat belt use, 172 lives and 100 million dollars in injury and death costs can be saved. Motivated by these statistics as well as my personal experience, I am committed to saving lives and reducing the number of deaths and serious injuries that result from not wearing a seat belt through my program “Think S.A.F.E.: Seatbelts Are For Everyone.”
I am working side-by-side with other groups to reach my goals:
Arkansas Govenor - Mike Beebe
Pulaski County Sheriff - Doc Holladay
Pulaski County Judge - Buddy Villines
North Little Rock Mayor - Joe Smith
Arkansas Children’s Hospital
North Little Rock School District
State Farm Insurance - Celebrate My Drive
Drive by the Rules- Keep the Privilege
With the help of these people and organizations, I am striving to inform others about the importance of always wearing a seat belt.
Some of the programs I have initiated with Think SAFE are
My desire is to make “Think S.A.F.E.: Seatbelts Are For Everyone” a concept that children grow up with like “Stop, Drop, and Roll” or “Look both ways before you cross the street.”
Please remember, it only takes three seconds and it doesn't cost a cent.
