We Save Lives is a collective voice representing the public and private sectors concerned with drunk, drugged and distracted driving and their immediate and deadly threat on our highways.
This organization was started by Candace Lightner, Founder of MADD in 1980. She recently started We Save Lives (WSL) because “I BELIEVE THAT PEOPLE CAN MOVE MOUNTAINS BY WORKING TOGETHER”. I also believe that by partnering with businesses, community leaders, highway safety advocates, concerned citizens, organizations and survivors of traffic safety crashes, we would have a greater influence on highway safety policy at the local, state and national levels. We need more change and we need it now! Even though each of us has our own cause in the field of traffic safety, we all have a common purpose – saving lives.
