Distracted Driving Assemblies in PA

Pennsylvania organizations are teaming up to talk about the serious nature of distracted driving to Pennsylvania teens.  According to TheAutoChannel, the Pennsylvania Assocation for Justice (PAJ), The Casey Feldman Foundation/EndDD,org, and 60forSafety.org are teaming up to discuss ways that teenage drivers can be safer on the road.  Specifically focusing on distracted driving, the program is part of a national movement spearheaded by trial lawyer called "End Distracted Driving".  This program uses a wide variety of material to demonstrate just how much an effect a small distraction can have on driving safety.  The program has already a meeting at a school in Exton, PA.

Many trial lawyers see many accidents involving distracted driving.  Since, by nature, these accidents are preventable, the fact that they occur at all is particularly aggravating. The "End Distracted Driving" program began a year ago and has already reached over 50,000 students nationwide. The creator of this program, Joel Feldman, is a partner at the Philly area law firm of Anapol Swartz.  The creation of this program is due in large part to the death of their daughter, who was a victim of a distracted driving accident in 2009.
