As we are asked to stay put, both traffic and crashes have been reduced by 50% but the incidence of speeding has increased dramatically according to MI State Police. So be wary when you do drive because tailgaters will rapidly be upon you. Speed can be a killer. July 4 holiday traffic may be unreal since many travelers will not want to fly.
Stay safe, don’t speed and please refrain from using phone when driving.

2019 was busy year for FADD. You can see listing of presentations, meetings, displays at Speaker Availability tab. Unfortunately driver behaviors have not improved according to police. Crash deaths & injuries continue and may be accelerated by use of recreational marijuana. Colorado 1st state to approve recreational use reported 66% increase in fatal crash victims blood tests and their youths #1 in country-55% above national level. Michigan beats NY in crash death numbers. We have had healthy start for Operation Teen Driver and hope to accelerate efforts in 2020.
