“There is still a need to educate the public more about road safety,” May Altarejos-Cueva, founder of Project Community Activities Reaching Everyone Through Services (CARES), Inc. told DNX.

Cueva, whose brother, Augustus died in a road accident 25 years ago, said accidents are not really “accidents because these can be prevented.”
