About EndDD

Casey Feldman (April 6, 1988-July 17, 2009)

EndDD.org is Committed to Reducing Crashes Caused by Distracted Driving.

EndDD.org (End Distracted Driving) is a campaign of the Casey Feldman Foundation. Casey was 21 when she was killed by a distracted driver in Ocean City, NJ.  She was struck while walking in a crosswalk on a beautiful summer day. The distracted driver said he never saw her.

Following Casey’s death her parents, Joel Feldman and Dianne Anderson, created EndDD.org and committed to doing everything they could to reduce distracted driving crashes and make the roads safer for all of us. Joel has personally given more than 1000 presentations to about 200,000 students and adults.

The website, EndDD.org, is one of the leading websites devoted to education about, and the elimination of, distracted driving. EndDD.org provides speakers across the country for school, community, and business presentations. The United States Department of Transportation selected the EndDD.org high school presentation for analysis and in a study released in 2022, found the presentation effective in changing teen driving attitudes and behaviors surrounding distracted driving. In 2023, an analysis of an intervention conducted by EndDD.org and The Delaware Office of Highway Safety in driver’s ed classes, also found the presentation effective for teens.

Some EndDD.org highlights:

  • Forged partnerships with many companies and traffic safety organizations, including Honda Corporation, Amazon, Selective Insurance Company, Lear Corporation, First Energy Co and the Governor’s Highway Safety Association, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, National Transportation Safety Board and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety;
  • With funding from our partners, created Public Service Announcements used by EndDD,org and traffic safety organizations across the country;
  • Worked with businesses to introduce teen distracted driving programs in their communities;
  • Introduced new programs to teach kids about directed driving long before they get their licenses;
  • Elementary school lesson plans and K-2 distracted driving picture book;
  • Worked with responders to create distracted driving educational programs and to educate about “Slow Down/Move Over Laws,” to keep responders safe.
  • 125 volunteer speakers, given presentations to more than 525,000 students in almost every state in the U.S., all without any cost to schools.
