Mobility Week

Mobility Week, successfully launched in 2016 in Central Florida, is an annual collection of outreach events intended to bring attention to safe multimodal transportation choices. The success of the Central Florida region in bringing together regional partners to promote the message of safety and multimodal transportation, prompted the expansion of the initiative statewide in 2018.

During Mobility Week, cities, counties, and transportation partner agencies host events to promote transportation choices, highlight transportation achievements, and roll out new initiatives or policies.Click here to find out more about the events and activities from the last three years.

Drive to Save Lives

U R The Key: Drive to Save Lives tour at area high schools

Jacksonville and St Augustine – Cara Filler presented her Drive To Save Lives to many of our local high school students. Cara’s identical twin sister was killed in a crash while driving with her boyfriend, who was speeding and showboating. Cara uses her personal tragedy to educate teens in a positive and “doesn’t feel like learning” way on how to be a safe passenger, how to get out of driving with an impaired or dangerous driver, and how to take personal charge of your own safety.

“Your life. Your choice.”

Car crashes continue to be the number one cause of death for our teens. Having this amazing, national speaker available to our schools for free to discuss the importance of teen traffic safety was priceless. Special thanks go out to Florida SADD with grants from State Farm and the Florida Teen Safe Driving Coalition for making these life-saving presentations happen at eight of our schools.

Our Community Traffic Safety Team and other educational outreach of groups like SADD and the Teen Safe Driving Coalition continue to do all that we can to drive down teen deaths on our roadways. Our community leaders and partners help ensure teen drivers are provided with the information, motivation and tools that will keep them safe on the road.

Cara is a natural speaker, engaging and memorable. This powerful tour will not be forgotten by the students. The video, recorded and produced by Favorite Studios, is only a highlight of the full presentation which lasted about an hour. There was such an enthusiastic response from students and faculty, we can hope to see more of these teen safety events in the future.
