“When you have a brain injury, you have to start over with everything…”
-Diamone Ricketts, artist and crash survivor
A person’s story can affect us in a way that data and statistics never fully can.
The Bicycle Friendly Driver Program was recently honored to partner with the Brain Injury Association of NC, the NC Department of Health and Human Services and others to present Safer Roads for Us All, featuring the stories of North Carolinians directly impacted by motor vehicle crashes.
Ben Barry, Diamone Ricketts and Onnr Grogan honestly and powerfully shared through their personal stories how our behavior as motorists can forever impact other people.
The presentation’s recording is available here. We encourage you to watch it, share it with others, and most importantly, drive in a way that respects the experience of these presenters and so many other vulnerable road users.
