Partner Matt Devoti to Deliver ‘End Distracted Driving’ Message at Ursuline Academy

Posted by Lara Vitiello on November 7, 2017

mattd004webDistracted 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 accidents because they were texting and driving.

On Thursday, November 9, 2017, Casey & Devoti Partner Matt Devoti will deliver the ‘End Distracted Driving’ 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’.

ursulineacademylogoThree years ago, feeling compelled to do something about the distracted driving epidemic, local attorneys Matt Casey and Matt Devoti partnered with EndDD (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.”

endddlogoEndDD 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.

Since April 2012, more than 400 professionals have given presentations to more than 325,000 teens and adults. 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.  If your organization would like to book a presentation, please contact Lara Vitiello at (314) 409-0996 or lmv@caseydevoti.com.
