PursuitWatch promotes safer pursuit policy and the elimination of unnecessary pursuits. Contrary to what some have said this is not a police-bashing site, and PursuitWatch does not support the abolition of police pursuits.
RADD (Recording Artists, Actors and Athletes Against Drunk Driving) is ‘The Entertainment Industry’s Voice for Road Safety’. An internationally-recognized nonprofit [501 (c)(3)] corporation since 1986, RADD pairs celebrities, media partners and socially conscious sponsors to create positive attitudes about road safety.
Road Safe America proposes that all large trucks (10 wheels or more) be required to program their speed governors, which have been standard equipment for many years, at a reasonable speed such as 65 mph. This simple, common-sense rule will enable large trucks to stop or nearly stop in the same distance as passenger vehicles traveling at highway speeds.
The organization has also announced an initiative to establish Drive Safer Sunday as a national observance every year on the Sunday after Thanksgiving.
Safe Driving Council, Inc.
