$3,000 IN ANNUAL PRIZES AWARDED FOR ESSAYS ON DISTRACTED DRIVING
Distracted driving claims thousands of lives every year and over the last decade it has become a nationwide epidemic, especially among teen drivers.
The Law Offices of Mark E. Salomone has joined the fight to end distracted driving by highlighting the dangers and taking steps to spread awareness – and you can help.
We are proud to announce that we are holding an essay contest for college students and will award three winners a combined $3,000 in scholarships to help further their education in 2021. The essays will focus on how to prevent distracted driving and promote safe driving habits among young drivers.
Distracted driving – especially sending or reading a text – poses a threat not just to the driver, but to their passengers, people in other cars, and pedestrians. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), from 2012-2017 roughly 20,000 people were killed in crashes involving a distracted driver, and teens ages 15-19 have the largest percentage of fatal crashes due to distracted driving.
These crashes are preventable, and together we can help bring distracted driving to an end.
