In early February representatives from Casey & Devoti teamed up with Jackie Gonz of the Jacquelyn S. Gonz Law Firm to present the ‘End Distracted Driving Student Awareness Program’ to the students of Bismarck High School in Bismarck, Missouri (about 80 miles southwest of 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.
“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 Jackie Gonz. “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.”
Last year, Matt Casey, Matt Devoti, and Jackie Gonz delivered the presentation to over 1,500 high school students across St. Louis and southeastern Missouri. The trio has two more presentations set for this spring at St. John Vianney High School in St. Louis and Perryville High School in Perryville, Missouri.
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 after her death in 2009 when she was hit and killed by a distracted driver. Since April 2012, more than 400 professionals have given presentations to more than 225,000 teens and adults. Learn more about EndDD.org and preview the presentation at www.EndDD.org.
