At Smith System®, our mission is to create safer driving environments through innovative solutions. We’re thrilled to share a testimonial from Curt Fernandez, the Director of Risk Management at Arlington, Texas ISD and the 1-800 How’s My Driving decal-based safety program, implemented through Drivers Alert, which highlights the impact of our initiatives on enhancing road safety. 

A Journey of Success: From Minneapolis to Arlington, Texas ISD

Curt Fernandez’s journey with the Drivers Alert safety program began in 2017 when he was the Loss Control Coordinator for the City of Minneapolis. Having successfully tested, and implemented the program there, he carried this commitment to Risk Management and safety with him when he transitioned to Arlington ISD in 2022. By November of 2023, with the invaluable assistance of Mihai Cercel, and the Arlington, TX ISD leadership support, the HMD program was up and running, showing promising results from the start.

Curt’s endorsement of Mihai Cercel’s performance is a testament to the dedication and professionalism that Mihai brings to our team. Having known Mihai since 2019, Curt appreciates his exceptional management style, characterized by accessibility and a hands-on approach. Mahai’s direct and efficient business instincts have been pivotal in educating Arlington ISD staff about the HMD program and fostering a safety culture within the organization.
