Soon after Mark Hutchinson entered law enforcement in 1989, he came to a frustrating realization: too much of police work was reactive rather than proactive. Mark vowed to help stop traffic fatalities before they happen by making safety his life’s work. Founding Blue Line Solutions achieved his vision of finding a proactive way to save lives.
“My first experience with a traffic fatality was a boy named Matthew, just 10 years old, unbelted in the back seat of a car driven by his father, who was legally drunk. I worked to keep Matthew alive as long as I could – but he died in my arms before the paramedics arrived. I had vivid dreams about him for months. Every detail, over and over. I knew that his death could have been prevented.”
