"Reckless Driving Kills", DOT’s latest Vision Zero public awareness campaign to combat dangerous driving captures the stories of grieving family members, asking New Yorkers to slow down and drive with caution.
On September 24th, 2005, Audrey Anderson's son Andre was riding his bicycle on Shorefront Parkway. As he was making his way home that evening, he was hit from behind by an SUV and killed. Andre was only 14 years old. He was Audrey's oldest child, her only son, and the love of her life. Audrey describes him as a young man with a beautiful soul, saying that "Andre was a very smart and vibrant individual who loved life. He possessed one of the most beautiful personalities I could ever imagine.” Andre’s loss pains Audrey every day: “I surely miss him and will always cherish all the great memories we shared. Andre was only 14 but we shared a beautiful life. He can never be forgotten.”
