GRAND RAPIDS, Mich, (March 13, 2014) —  Her daughter was killed by road rage in 2002. And more than a decade later, Kay Shabazz strives to drive the point home to both teens and adults, that it can happen to anyone.

She will share that message with students at Kenowa Hills High School on Thursday. The “Monster Jam® and Kent County Sherriff’s “Roll Over Road Rage” event starts at 8:30 a.m. at Kenowa Hills High School. Several upper class student leaders from Kenowa Hills High School will also help with the presentation.

Since the death of her daughter, Diyamond Foster, Shabazz founded the organization called Reaching Out Against Road Rage (R.O.A.R.R.)

Following the presentation, Monster Jam® truck driver Brandon Derrow will speak to students and ask them to text, tweet and/or post a pledge to stop road rage (#MJStopsRoadRage).
