Distracted driving has properly been called an “epidemic.” And this epidemic is worsening.
More than 10 people are killed and more than 1000 injured every day in the U.S. because of distracted driving crashes. Fatal crashes caused by distracted driving are increasing on a percentage basis faster than those caused by drunk driving, speeding and failing to wear seat belts. Our children are particularly vulnerable, with more than 50% of serious teen crashes now caused by distracted driving.
That is why EndDD.org’s mission to educate students about distracted driving is so very important. Our science-based presentation has been given to more than 475,000 students since 2011. Presentations are given without charge to schools by our national network of volunteer speakers. By joining our network of speakers you will be joining nearly 400 trial lawyers, nurses, physicians, injury prevention coordinators, teachers, college students, business professionals and law enforcement who are dedicated to keeping students safe. Our presentation is updated annually to take advantage of the latest research and methods for effectively communicating critical safety messages. We are gratified by the praise that educators, researchers, law enforcement, businesses, adults and students give for the EndDD.org presentation. Our commitment to you, as a volunteer speaker, is to give you the best presentation and supplementary resources that we can and to make giving presentations as easy as possible for you.
