Distracted driving is an epidemic in the United States. One in four accidents in the U.S. involve texting and driving. Every day 11 teenagers die in car accident because they were texting and driving.
On Thursday, November 9, 2017, Matt Devoti will present the ‘End Distracted Driving Student Awareness Program’ to the students at Ursuline Academy in St. Louis. This interactive presentation is done free of charge and offers the sobering statistics of the current safety crisis, shares true stories of the costs of distracted driving, and offers simple steps that drivers can use immediately to help themselves and others around them ‘end distracted driving’.
Three years ago, feeling compelled to do something about the distracted driving epidemic, Partners Matt Casey and Matt Devoti joined forces with EndDD.org (End Distracted Driving) to become authorized speakers for the ‘End Distracted Driving Student Awareness Program’. Since that time, they have delivered the presentation to over 4,000 high schools students throughout St. Louis and southeastern Missouri.
“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 Joel Feldman and Dianne Anderson, after their daughter, Casey Feldman, was hit and killed by a distracted driver.

Matt and Matt are thrilled to be part of the network of speakers who volunteer their time to give presentations in the St. Louis area. The firm is currently booking presentations for spring 2018.
