National Passenger Safety Campaign

We Save Lives and the National Road Safety Foundation launched National Passenger Safety Week and were joined by more than 50 other partners.

National Passenger Safety Week, January 22 - 28, 2023

U.S. roadway deaths are rising again at an alarming rate. People are still driving recklessly. Drunk, drugged and distracted driving are on the rise. Just telling people to drive safely isn’t enough. We need to do more. We can do more! Passengers need to play a more active role in their own safety and that of others. Passengers need to be empowered to speak up and have the Courage to Intervene when their lives are threatened by an unsafe driver.

That is why We Save Lives and the National Road Safety Foundation launched The National Passenger Safety Campaign. Our goal is to promote safe driving practices and prevent unsafe ones by empowering passengers to “SPEAK UP” when their lives are in danger from a reckless driver.

You have a choice! By speaking up you share that you care about the lives of your friends, family members and even strangers. We urge you – choose to stay safe by intervening.
