For the first time, over 15 universities in the state of Colorado and a national non-profit dedicated to campus health and safety assembled for a Distracted Driving Summit (DDS) with EndDD.org. During the week of May 20, Joel Feldman, the keynote speaker and founder of EndDD.org, discussed how his 21-year-old daughter, Casey, was killed in a car accident caused by a distracted driver. He explained how he was guilty of distracted driving practices until his daughter was killed.
Much like drunk driving awareness seminars held by Mothers Against Drunk Driving, DDS is aimed at bringing awareness to the dangers of driving distracted. Feldman has developed research based on his distracted driving presentation specifically aimed at young people. By the end of 2013, nearly 200,000 young people will have shared in the demonstration.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention defines distracted driving as “driving while doing another activity that takes your attention away from driving.” If a distracted driver has injured you or a loved one, call our national accident attorney today at (866) 377-3800.
