The Kiefer Foundation Chairman Steve Kiefer has been appointed to the Governor’s Traffic Safety Advisory Commission (GTSAC) by Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. The purpose of the GTSAC is to provide leadership in the identification of state and local traffic safety issues and promote recommended strategies to address them.
“It means a great deal to be personally appointed to the GTSAC by Governor Whitmer,” said Kiefer. “From our very first meeting, she has embraced our family and our mission to end distracted driving and increase safety on our Michigan roads.”
About the Kiefer Foundation
On April 30, Steve Kiefer, Juliana Kiefer & Blake Kiefer testified in front of the Michigan House Transportation Committee in support of three bills that are proposed to help make Michigan roads safer by expanding current no texting laws.
“I really hope that you guys can all find it in your hearts to help us make the roads safer and really save lives around Michigan and around the country,” said Blake Kiefer.
The Kiefer Foundation supports hands free legislation, which will ultimately ban the use of all hand held devices while driving. Similar laws have been adopted in 18 states, and have significantly reduced crashes and fatalities.
The Kiefer Foundation is directing all Michigan supporters to send a letter to their representative via handsfreemichigan.org.
