Drunk Driving Awareness Trailer by Trailerlogic
BELTON, S.C. February 26, 2015 – Trailerlogic, Belton, S.C. based and a leader in custom cargo trailer and specialty vehicle manufacturing, was afforded the opportunity to build a trailer that will assist in raising awareness in the state of Tennessee about the dangers of drunk driving. The educational trailer showcases the motorcycle on which Allen Schlapman, brother of Stephen Schlapman and country music group Little Big Town’s Kimberly Schlapman, was riding when he was killed by a drunk driver. The awareness initiative was launched through a memorial checkpoint for Allen on January 30, 2015 by the Franklin Police Department.
The Schlapman family donated the motorcycle to the Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) program and the Tennesee Governor’s Highway Safety Office in hopes that it will help people make a personal commitment to not drink and drive. SADD will take the trailer to events across the state to educate on destructive decisions such as underage drinking and risky or impaired driving. “We were honored to be able to build a trailer that will help share Allen’s tragic death with more people,” said Trailerlogic’s President Michael Richardson. “Working on this project also helped us learn more about the work that these wonderful organizations are doing and we hope that support for them grows tremendously.” Within the trailer partnership is also The Dogwood Project, created by the Schlapman family, which provides assistance and encouragement during the grieving process to children who have lost a close relative.
