Reporter: Tell me about the different things you’re involved in, like I think it’s three different things that you’re involved in.
Edward Reyes: So, one is vision zero, things with that. Tampa mobility as well. And just individually I’m part of a lot of advocacy groups. You know by groups and things like to help out. It’s all really focused towards the same things. We are all advocating for the same cause- it’s trying to reduce fatalities, trying to reduce injuries, trying to make the city safer.
Edward Reyes: So, those organizations are really good because we’re making changes within the city, making changes within people, and mindset. In fact, I do a lot of interviews myself educating. Plus, I do a lot of educational stuff on my social media. I am constantly doing videos education on these subjects.
Edward Reyes: To error is human, right? So, there’s going to be error, regardless. So, the idea is that we can bring awareness and make people cognizant of the things that they need to be doing in order to be safer drivers. You know, more cognizant of moped accidents, and you know people crossing, and everything else.
Edward Reyes: Well, in those organizations there is funding behind it. So, a lot of the transportation money that comes in they’re going to be allocating some of that money to make the road safer, make them wider and those are part of Tampa Mobility and the Vision. So, there’s a lot of advocacy part on that side when it comes to funding. So, I think that’s going to make a change because one thing is education, one thing is actually who’s going to pay for it and how is that going to happen. I mean, because you need both parts.
