“Distracted driving is a huge problem for people of all ages – not just teens. That is the message we want to get across to these young drivers,” said Matt Devoti.  “We want them to be aware of the consequences whether it’s them, their parent or their friend who is driving distracted.  The presentation offers eye-opening insight and concrete solutions to the problem that they can implement right away.”

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.  Their story was recently featured on a segment of The Today Show.  Click here to learn more about EndDD.org, preview the presentation, and watch The Today Show segment.

Since April 2012, more than 400 professionals have given presentations to more than 225,000 teens and adults.
