Crash Survivor Information

Have you been affected by a crash? Since its inception in 1989, Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety (Advocates) has worked with “survivor advocates” to advance and protect highway safety laws throughout the country. Survivor advocates have suffered the personal consequences of motor vehicle crashes - either have personally survived a crash, or have had a loved one killed or injured in a crash. Bravely, they have decided to “put a face on an issue” to try to protect others from the pain and loss that they have had to endure.

Advocates is building a network of survivor advocates.
