The Williams Sisters
Tiffanie (16), Twana (15) and Victoria (14) are the creators of
“Drive Safe” which is a national campaign (non-profit 501 (c) (3) Smart Teens Drive Safe Foundation), and their mission is to "SAVE LIVES,” says Twana Williams, Vice President of Drive Safe and Smart Teens Drive Safe Foundation. And on Wednesday, April 7th this impressive trio of young sisters received the Key to the City, and a Proclamation from their City of Columbia, SC. They were presented with the honor of this most prestigious award with House Majority Whip, Congressman James E. Clyburn of the great State of South Carolina in attendance. “I have been following the success of The Williams Sisters for the past few years. It is wonderful to see the passion these young ladies have on a very important subject.” said Clyburn. The young entrepreneurs of Drive Safe shared with the assembly room that morning, that the high fatality rate of teen drivers is what lead them to embark on this national campaign, and create the Smart Teens Drive Safe Foundation.

According to National Transportation Institute, an average of 16 teenagers between the ages 16-25 are killed in motor vehicle accidents each day. Victoria Williams, Director of Operations of Drive Safe and Smart Teens Drive Safe Foundation states “We are extremely proud and grateful for every award we receive, but our ultimate award is reading the testimonies from people our safety product is helping and if we deter one fatality a day, week, or even a month… all our hard work will have been well worth it!

Tiffanie Williams, the President of Drive Safe and the CEO of the Smart Teens Drive Safe Foundation also announced their Smart Teens Drive Safe and Smart Kids Ride Safe Campaign to kick off National Traffic Safe Month, May 1, 2010. The project is supported by an advisory committee which includes: Technology Transfer & Training Coordinator, Lamar Tisdale of SC State University; President, Patricia Poyser of Corporate Credit Group LLC; and President & CEO, Richard E. Pelzer II of MEGA Management Inc., the Business Manager of Tiffanie, Twana and Victoria Williams. “The MEGA team and I are honored to have the (3) Williams Sisters on our roster,” states Pelzer. “These three young ladies are very talented, as actors, models and dancers; however, what makes them special are their entrepreneurial spirit and knowledge of their organization “Drive Safe”.
