As a member of the SADD community, I was shocked when I heard the news that one of my fellow SADD members was in a serious car accident. This student was an active SADD member for years and has always been an activist for safe driving. The accident was a head on collision with the opposite car trying to pass illegally on a double yellow line. The driver at fault as traveling at 70mph. Thankfully, our SADD member was wearing his seat belt at the time of the crash, which he credits to saving his life. Numerous surgeries and months of rehab later, he is now able to walk on his own again. His recovery is inspiring to our SADD and school community. By applying the lesson of always wearing a seat belt, a life was saved.
