‘Knight Rider’ Inspires Child Safety Program

One man can make a difference

Sgt. Glenn Young spent the last 25+ years working on child safety, and created a program centered around the original Knight Rider series for that very purpose. Along with his KITT replica, Sgt. Glenn Young brings his KITT-inspired mini “K.I.D.” (Kids In Danger) car that can put out a fire, ride on two wheels, talk and even shoot an “anti-stranger” spray among others.

The David Hasselhoff-endorsed program teaches kids about stranger danger, what to do in case of an emergency, fire safety, and how police are their friends, among other points.

Hoffspace’s Nathan D Goughnour is a friend of Sgt. Young and posted some photos of KITT and KID and told us about it. Read what he has to say and view more photos.
