Marisa’s Way

In the very early morning of Sunday, November 17th, 2013, a terrible tragedy took the lives of two very beautiful young ladies.. Marisa Catronio and Kaitlyn Ferrante were best of friends, and in an instant, they were killed by a “Wrong Way” driver on a Florida Expressway. This tragedy should have never happened. Two young ladies with lives about to unfold are lost. Their parents, family and friends are devastated.

Marisa’s Way is a site that will be dedicated to making sure that their lost lives will lead to greater highway safety. We will seek to have a bill introduced through the Florida Legislature that will focus on creating more entrance ramp awareness, along with physical devices to alert wrong way drivers.

We have made a great strides since the tragedy that caused Marisa’s Way to be founded. Most notably the recent news that the FDOT will be installing 10 of the Blink-Link LED Wrong Way signs and detection devices on 5 different off ramps of the Sawgrass Expressway this summer.

This is a great start, but it’s just the beginning. We may not be able to prevent them all, but that will always be our goal. We need your help in order to prevent these senseless deaths, and we won’t stop until we do.

Your donation will go to work instantly to help save lives, by allowing us to create greater awareness programs, and provide them to communities throughout Florida and the rest of the country. . We will also be providing scholarships to local student volunteers. — these programs are not possible without your help and support.

Together, we can make the world a safer place for our loved ones.
Thank you!
