Dear Secretary Rahn:

Our organization, the <insert name>, strongly supports the 300 Lives Initiative and is a partner with the DWI Resource Center and many other organizations in pursuing our common goal to save 300 lives in New Mexico motor vehicle crashes between now and 2005. 

Your Traffic Safety Bureau recently solicited public input regarding its traffic safety goals and plans for the next five years.  We urge you to embrace the goals and methods of the 300 Lives Initiative and to adopt them as key parts of your Department's performance goals and programs for the next five years.  New Mexico has achieved rapid progress before through focused, research-proven prevention efforts toward ambitious goals.  With your help and the Coalition's, we know together New Mexico can do it again.

We look forward to working with you to make that happen!
