Streets Are For Everyone
Streets Are For Everyone (SAFE) aims to improve the quality of life for pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers alike by working to reduce traffic caused fatalities to Zero.
SAFE addresses the problem in a holistic fashion through direct education, broad awareness campaigns, partnerships, community outreach, policy and legislation, support for those impacted and other proven strategies.
Streets Are For Everyone (SAFE) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded in January 2014. Our mission is to use sensible, proven strategies to prevent hit and run crimes and the events leading up to them, thus making city streets safe for all users pedestrians, bicyclists and motor vehicles.
Dedicated SAFE staff and volunteers with a combined 75 years of experience in the non-profit sector have, in the short time since establishment, changed the face of traffic safety. Almost 100 million people reached through mass media and social media with the message that hit and run crimes are no longer acceptable.
We are proud to say that we have helped implement the following:
The first ever hit and run alert system implemented in Los Angeles.
The first ever standing rewards program in L.A. to catch hit and run criminals.
The first state law specifically addressing hit and run crimes, Damian's Law.
The first ever billboards in L.A. specifically addressing hit and run crimes.
Most importantly, per LAPD statistics, hit and run crimes have dropped by 16% in the last year. Working not only in the Los Angeles area but rapidly expanding to other metropolitan areas including (but not limited to) Sacramento, Orange County, Ventura County and Wisconsin.
