We mourn the death and celebrate the life of our 05 Saves Lives Coalition Founding Chairman, the Honorable Norman Y. Mineta (November 12, 1931 - May 3, 2022) who was the longest serving Secretary of Transportation in US history (2001-2006). Before it was a catch phrase, he was “present” with every person he met and his sense of humor was legendary. It was his secret to a happy, full life. Secretary Mineta was a statesman and the voice of action for road safety worldwide. Our current shift to a more balanced safe system approach had its genesis under his guiding hand and we are grateful for his support in preventing deaths and injuries through .05% BAC Laws. We send our heartfelt condolences to Deni Mineta and the entire Mineta family. Farewell and thank you, Secretary Mineta.
From the .05 Saves Lives Co-Founders,
Bella Dinh-Zarr, Tom Louizou, David Sleet, and Marilena Amoni
