With our own children approaching driving age, we are reminded nearly every day of the safe driving practices we want our children to utilize. All too often, car accidents are caused by distracted drivers who are rubbernecking, texting, eating, or talking on the phone. As Arizona car accident attorneys, we hope all drivers minimize their distractions in the car.
This weekend at the Tempe Diablo Stadium, the National Driving Safety Institute and Cricket Communications are hosting a safe driving program for teens (KPHO 9/24/10). The program, the XCD Driving Challenge, is expecting over 100 teens to participate in programs designed to teach teens how to ignore distractions, including activities such as the “Safe Text Driving Challenge.”
Teens are well aware of the dangers of texting and driving, yet surveys show that 86% still do it. As part of the American Lawyer Academy, we are sponsoring a scholarship program to help teach teens about the dangers of distracted driving. There is $25,000 available in scholarships to high school seniors and college students who enter the contest. Full entry rules and requirements are available on our website at www.breyerlaw.com/viral-video-scholarship-contest-southwest-region.html.
If you or your loved one ever find yourselves injured due to a distracted driver, please call us for a free consultation. We may be able to help you get the compensation you deserve. We’re available at (480) 753-4534.
