Brandon Douglas Abrams
Brandon was a great little boy. When he was around he lit up the room whit his personality. Brandon loved company and never wanted to be alone. He loved to play outside with his sister and ride his bike. He was always willing to help a person when they needed it. He was full of life and lived every day to its fullest.
Brandon was riding his bike on 1/24/2013 on the side walk. He was waiting anxiously for the ice cream man to come. He saw that the ice cream man was on his way and he began to ride toward home. Right at that time a truck jump the curb hitting Brandon. He was rushed to the hospital via Air Life but he did not make it. This was the worst day of our lives.
Brandon's Law is my response to the worst day we ever had. I'm requesting that a law be made for new developments; that when a subdivision is created the builder must include speed humps on main entry roads and through streets. The builders product is not just the house they build but the entire community they create. Of course they follow regulations on building their homes but there needs to be regulations on road safety as well. The cost of this requirement would be shared buy all in the community that it benefits.
In conjunction with this I will be requesting that the speed limits inside a subdivision be reduced from 30 mph down to 20 mph. This is because it takes 2 times the distance to stop when going 30 mph then it does at 20 mph. School zones are 20 mph because children are present, children are always present in subdivision so why should it be any different.
We are pursuing these changes because we love our children and we know you love yours. We never want anyone t experience the worst day of there lives as we have.
