Diane Pearson lost her 31-year-old son Gene, a Pinellas County Sheriff’s Deputy, in a motorcycle accident after a driver pulled out in front of him. Now her mission is to do everything to protect other motorcyclists by bringing awareness to motorist of the importance of looking twice before turning or pulling out. She has given out over 165,000 purple bumper stickers that read, “Look twice. Save a life. Motorcycles are everywhere.”

The “Look twice. Save a life. Motorcycles are everywhere.” campaign was originally started by Kathy Malone, a Georgia Mother who also lost a son in a motorcycle accident over 25 years ago.

If you would like to order a bumper sticker or help the cause please visit Gene Pearson Motorcycle Awareness Foundation.
