+ Lutzie 43 Foundation

Together, we are ending distracted, impaired and unsafe driving in the state of Georgia.

Focus area one: Awareness

Through the Lutzie 43 Foundation's 43 Key Seconds safe driving initiative and Georgia DOT's Drive Alert, Arrive Alive campaign, drivers across the state can have tools to prioritize safety behind the wheel and in the car.

Focus area two: Education

The Lutzie 43 Foundation and Georgia DOT will run a comprehensive communications plan to bring recognition and education to distracted and impaired driving as well as host Safe Driving Summits across the state.

Focus area three: Key Distribution

Georgia DOT's HERO and CHAMP programs will distribute 43 Key Seconds keys to drivers during their stops and calls.

100 Deadliest Days of Summer

The period between Memorial Day and Labor Day is referred to as the ‘100 Deadliest Days of Summer’ when the “average number of deadly teen driver crashes climbs 15%.” According to the CDC, teen drivers between the ages of 16-19 are three times more likely than drivers 20 and older to be involved in a deadly crash. Set a goal to Drive Alert Arrive Alive by taking 43 Key Seconds before hitting the road: Clear Head, Clear Hands, Clear Eyes and Click your Seatbelt before turning the key. These simple steps can make all the difference in keeping you and your loved ones safe during every journey. Let’s prioritize safety this summer on our roadways as a driver and as a passenger.
