A message from the President

If you are in Nebraska, Rhode Island or another state and thinking why is We Save Lives sending us this newsletter, this is California. What difference does this make to me or my family?

I am giving you fair warning! This could happen in your state or maybe it already has. Do you know what bills your legislature is considering when it comes to issues you care about? Do you keep abreast of the latest policy changes or laws that get passed? If not, you should. These laws affect you and your loved ones.
The Governors Highway Safety Organization is an excellent resource to learn more about the existing laws in your state.

You need to have an open line of communication with your local Representatives. Check in with them during session to see if anyone has introduced a bill like the one in California. Ask if they are doing anything about drunk, drugged and distracted driving. Let them know these issues are important to you and you would like to help. Maybe they are considering a bill to toughen penalties for drunk drivers and you have a story to share. Let your Representative know that you would be willing to testify or even generate support for the bill. There are so many ways to participate in the legislative process and make your voice count.

If you are not a registered voter, please register. Voting is one of the most important freedoms we have in this country. It is also another and very important way to make your voice count. Your vote can make the difference between a candidate being elected or defeated.

I want to wish you and your family the best of health and hope you are staying home, or if not, wearing masks, practicing social distancing, and washing your hands constantly. Please remember that not everyone will be as responsible about staying safe as you and that could put your life and those you love in jeopardy. #careenough .
