Firm Adopts Safe Driving Policy

Posted by Lara Vitiello on March 12, 2018

textingdrivingAs passionate advocates for distracted driving awareness, Matt Casey and Matt Devoti thought it was only fitting for the firm to adopt a safe driving policy. This policy sets guidelines and expectations for all Casey & Devoti employees whether they are on the road driving or in the office.

Oftentimes, Matt and Matt travel great distances to make court appearances or to meet clients – especially those in southeastern Missouri and Illinois.   Depending on where they must go, they could spend up to 2 hours each way in the car.  When everyone in the office has clear expectations of cell phone use while driving, it allows them to focus on the primary task of driving.  They can let incoming calls go to voicemail and wait to read incoming texts or emails until they reach their destination. On the other side, the office staff understands that when Matt and Matt are driving, they will not be responding to any voice or electronic messages.

It is our hope that other companies and organizations will adopt similar guidelines designed to keep their employees safe on the road. Read the entire Casey & Devoti safe driving policy and make a recommendation to adopt a similar one for your organization.

‘End Distracted Driving’ Connection

After seeing firsthand the devastating injuries caused by distracted driving accidents, Matt and Matt joined forces with EndDD.org to educate students about the dangers of this growing epidemic.  Over the past four years, they have delivered the powerful ‘End Distracted Driving’ message to over 5,000 students at 11 different high schools throughout St. Louis and southeastern Missouri.

The EndDD program aims to educate young drivers on the importance of eliminating distractions while driving – whether it’s texting, talking on the phone, posting to social media, talking to passengers, changing the radio, reaching for an object or eating. Visit EndDD.org to learn more and to preview the presentation. Casey & Devoti is currently booking student presentations for fall 2018. If you know a school or organization that would benefit from this program, please contact Lara Vitiello at (314) 409-0996 or lmv@caseydevoti.com.
