GHSA Remembers Kevin Quinlan

Kevin Quinlan

GHSA and the entire highway safety community were deeply saddened at the sudden loss of Kevin Quinlan in December. Quinlan was a tireless advocate for highway safety as Chief of NTSB's Safety Advocacy Division. He worked closely with GHSA Members to bring about numerous lifesaving laws. According to Congresswoman Shelly Berkley (D-NV), who honored Quinlan with a statement in the Congressional Record, "Quinlan was a mentor to countless traffic safety advocates and an inspiration to the thousands of people who lost loved ones to the preventable crime of drunk driving. One of his greatest passions was the fight to stop drunk driving. His expert testimony led to the passage of many effective countermeasures across this nation." GHSA Chairman Vernon F. Betkey, Jr., said that "Kevin was a particularly close friend to the Association and its member states. He will be greatly missed."
