Mike Lutzenkirchen of the Lutzie 43 Foundation, father of the late Auburn football great Philip Lutzenkirchen, will speak on driving safe and making responsible choices. He will address the community at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 21, at East Aurora High School Auditorium.
A press release stated, “Distracted and impaired driving is an epidemic. The number of lives lost or injured on the roads continues to rise as cell phone usage and other distractions in vehicles increase. Currently, distracted and impaired driving incidents are the leading cause of death for ages 16-19.
“Mike’s address to the community about the foundation's safe-driving initiative, ‘43 Key Seconds,’ is personal. The Lutzie 43 Foundation’s ‘43 Key Seconds’ initiative focuses on creating the first nationally recognized symbol for distracted and impaired driving. The physical ‘43 Key Seconds’ key serves as a physical reminder to drivers to have a clear head, clean hands, clear eyes and click their seatbelt before driving.”
East Aurora High School is located at 1003 Center St.
