The “Look Twice, Save a Life” movement began after one family lost their devoted husband, father, and son in a traumatic motorcycle accident. After being struck head-on by a drunk driver, the Look Twice, Save a Life movement was designed to promote motorcycle and motor vehicle safety in the hopes of reducing the number of serious injuries and fatalities that stem from motorcycle accidents and other accidents involving motor vehicles.
It is our mission to provide the public with informational resources and safety tips so they can be more informed and aware drivers. The goal is to save people’s lives wherever possible.
In addition to safety tips and resources, we share motorcycle and car accident survivor stories and the struggles they overcame and/or continue to endure as a result of the accident they were involved in.
Through education and the experiences of survivors, we hope to do our part to prevent future accidents, injuries, and mourning.
