Twenty Somethings Get Help From HERO Bus

By Joe Thompson

Everything we do is risky. From going to the office to simple playing with your children. Even driving or commuting can be considered risks. Plainly, this is because everything we do can bring harm to ourselves. We may overdo things that could bring harm to ourselves.

With this kind of philosophy in mind, a group of friends who were in their twenties and who hailed from the New Jersey area wanted to bring about a new kind of safety to the world. They worked together to bring about a new kind of driving and what they did to fulfill such a vision was to purchase their own bus. They did this because they thought that having their own bus would be the safest way to go about anywhere they would like to. The group is led by Nicholas Rosetti and he works as a mortgage planner.

Straight right out of eBay, the group bought a used passenger bus that could take in fifteen passengers inside. They bought it from a school system in Long Island and it cost them some $511 to own.

And who drives this bus, you may ask? The group is driven to various places by Craig Jancay, the designated driver of the bus. Jancay is also the roommate and co-worker as well of Rosetti. It does not matter where the group goes. The main thing here is that they do have got the HERO bus to take them there. Rosetti explains, We had heard a lot of horror stories about drunk drivers and did not want to be part of the problem.

What is amazing by this group's simple act of just being safe has been already recognized by an organization. The group has also been commended in the process just because of their fresh and different way of being safe on the road. It was the HERO Campaign for Designated Drivers that gave the group the commendation. You see, the HERO Campaign is actually a national organization that aims to prevent drunk driving. And Bill Elliot, the founder of the mentioned campaign says, The HERO Bus is an idea that can be duplicated around the country.

In effect, safety on the road simply does not end when you do have got the best vehicle or the best safety features or the best Daewoo auto parts. What matters is that you do know what you are doing and you are aware that your main purpose while on the road is to be safe and keep others safe.
