Distracted Driving results in thousands of deaths and hundreds of thousands of injuries each year.  Since April of 2012 more than 400 professionals, nurses, physicians, safety experts, driver’s education instructors, lawyers and others have given presentations to more than 125,000 teens and adults. Matt Casey and Matt Devoti are thrilled to be part of the network of speakers who will be volunteering their time to give presentations across the country.

EndDD.org (End Distracted Driving) was established to raise awareness and generate action against the epidemic of distracted driving. It was created by the parents of Casey Feldman, Joel Feldman and Dianne Anderson, after the death of their daughter, Casey Feldman in 2009.  Casey Feldman was just 21 years old when she was hit and killed by a distracted driver as she crossed a street governed by 4-way stop signs, during daylight hours.  The driver was reaching across the console for a drink and took his eyes off the road for a split second.  That split second cost Casey her life.
