RADD is a Non-Profit Organization that is dedicated to bringing awareness to Distracted and Careless Driving. I will be sharing links to statistics and the steps that I take through this journey. I currently guest speak at various functions to young and old to tell my story and bring awareness to what can happen when people are Distracted.
As well it is my mission to increase the penalties for Distracted and Careless Driving. To make the roads safer, so everyone can make it home. When RADD began this process, the penalty was a $172 fine for Distracted Driving and a maximum of a $2000 fine and 6 demerits for Careless Driving.
March 11, 2015- Renaye's story was introduced into the Alberta Legislature. Shortly after, Bill 204 received a unanimous vote. Bill 204 was to raise the fine to $250 and add 3 demerits. Shortly after, the fines were raised to $287. On December 10, 2015, the Minister of Transportation announced the adding of 3 demerits to be implimented on January 1, 2016.
With help I have had a petition drawn up that will ask legislation to add 6 demerits to Distracted Driving, and a possible licence suspension on Careless Driving. Help me help you, sign the petition.
