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.
These statistics are frightening and underscore the need for more community education regarding distracted driving. Feeling compelled to do something about the distracted driving epidemic, local attorneys Matt Casey and Matt Devoti have partnered with EndDD.org (End Distracted Driving) to become authorized speakers for the ‘End Distracted Driving Student Awareness Program’. This timely program aims to educate young drivers on the importance of eliminating distractions while driving.
On Tuesday, November 15, 2016, Matt Casey will present the program to the students at Cor Jesu 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.
Last year, the attorneys delivered the presentation to over 1,500 students at St. John Vianney High School, Bismarck High School and Perryville High School.
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 in 2009. Casey Feldman was just 21 years old when she was hit and killed by a distracted driver. Learn more about EndDD.org and preview the presentation at www.EndDD.org.
