When most people think about road safety organizations, they think of established organizations campaigning for social and legal change. While these organizations, such as non-profit foundations, are remarkably effective at making a difference, there is another type of institution that can be even more efficient at causing social, legal, and political changes: an alliance.

Advocates is a coalition of national consumer, health and safety organizations, law enforcement institutions, insurance companies, and trade associations who are fighting to make roads safer for everyone.
