Crash Coalition: Drop the "A" Word PDF Print E-mail

Safe Roads Alliance has partered with We Save Lives and its founder, Candace Lightner (also founder of MADD) in the Crash Coalition: Drop the "A" Word.  It is an effort to get American's to stop using the word "accident" in reference to roadway incidents.  

Crashes are almost always the result of driver error, poor decisions, negligent behavior and often crimes such as drunk, drugged and distracted driving.  These events are wholly preventable, and should not be called "accidents".   

Prevalent use of the word "accident" allows people to avoid responsibility for their role in crashes.  Further, it allows drunk, drugged, distracted and negligent drivers the connotation of innocense.
