Last year, November 23, 2015, I lost my sister in law in a car accident due to poor road conditions. She was on her way back from Vegas and while she was driving in the city of Baker, she drove over an unnoticeable dip that led her to swerve her car onto the other side of the road. She was facing toward oncoming traffic and got into a head on collision with a trailer. Unfortunately, she did not make it. She leaves behind a 5 year old daughter and a 6 year old daughter.

This averages to one crash-related pedestrian death every 2 hours.” This is really concerning, every 2 hours a person die because hit by a car, how can we prevent this tragically event?
