Anapol Schwartz partner Joel Feldman has partnered with the Delaware Trial Lawyers Association (DTLA) and will be training trial lawyers today to educate teens about the dangers of distracted driving. The volunteer attorneys will visit Delaware high schools and encourage students to give their full attention on the roadways as part of a nationwide initiative by End Distracted Driving (EndDD).
Feldman will be presenting Just a Few Seconds, a video released in February that interviews both the daughter of a man killed in a distracted driving accident and the young woman who killed him. Both women have turned the tragedy into an effort to save lives by appearing in the video and speaking at schools to raise awareness of distracted driving.
When Feldman’s daughter Casey was struck and killed by a distracted driver in 2009, he began EndDD to help prevent similar tragedies from happening to more people.
EndDD’s scientifically-based presentation has reached more than 50,000 teens and will reach 200,000 by the end of 2013. The campaign continues to expand as notable people join the fight as leaders working for the betterment of society. Joining EndDD is easy; the organization provides all materials, training and connections with local schools.
