Using the well-known “E’s” of road safety*, relevant research and best practices, plus in-depth front-line ‘practitioner’ experience, and victims’/relatives’ passion for greater safety, we are developing Road Safety USA to be an effective, multi-disciplinary, national force in this complex field.
Our initial focus is on supporting the bereaved, and on spreading more-accurate safety information and greater awareness, but even though that aspect will be perpetual, this truly is just the first step.
We have several other programs planned, each targeted at a key area, and these will be announced at the relevant times.
To do this, though, WE TRULY DO NEED YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT.
Please do help us to deliver the means for more lives to be saved on America’s roads.
If you prefer, you may send a check or money order by regular mail, to: Road Safety USA Inc., P.O. Box 302, Catskill, NY 12414
Thank you for any assistance you can give give.
Please be aware that we are also looking for volunteers all over the USA — a few of whom need to be specialists (mostly financial and administrative) but the vast majority of positions will be for anybody who cares about greater road safety.
If you might be interested in volunteering, please contact us.
- The “E’s” being: Education, Engineering, Enforcement, Emergency Evacuation (crash-scene rescue and hospitalization), and Evaluation (research to show the most effective methods are being used).
- Road Safety USA is incorporated as a not-for-profit organization and has also applied for 501(c)(3) status — a process which is now much longer and demanding than in previous years, quite rightly to protect the people who donate money to such organizations. In the meanwhile, we are still fully allowed to request donations but must point out that our supporters cannot claim their donations against income tax unless and until the 501(c)(3) application is finalised and verified. (That last statement is required by law but as we are doing all of our administration and applications with the assistance of attorneys who are specialists in ‘not-for-profit’ organizations, I think it fair to say that we have nothing to fear in this respect.)
