Our Mission

 

Families Against Wrong Way Drivers (FAWWD) organization raise awareness to reduce the total number of deaths and/or injuries due to drivers entering the freeway via exit ramps.  FAWWD  will continue to raise awareness for low profile  " TRAFFIC SPIKES' to be installed on  freeway  exit/off ramps enabling drivers to enter the freeway the wrong way.  FAWWD will support families who are even now, experiencing limited resources related to deaths by wrong way drivers. We provide educational modalities to inform High School students about the multiple consequences of imbibing alcohol and driving vehicles.  FAWWD award academic and career related scholarships to the families of those who died by wrong way drunk  drivers.   

Unfortunately, Anthony life was taken in a senseless way but we can FIGHT Together and save the lives of others.
