End Distracted Driving Day

End Distracted Driving Day: A Media Event

Virginia Beach, VA, March 14, 2012 — Attorney Don Marcari of Marcari Russotto Spencer and Balaban will join more than 750 attorneys from all 50 states and across Canada to help End Distracted Driving by talking with local teens at First Colonial and Princess Anne High School.

In honor of this initiative and to help spread the importance of this message, the city of Virginia Beach and Mayor Sessoms has agreed to proclaim End Distracted Driving Week through April 23rd – 29th.

The 60 minute presentation – part of April’s National Distracted Driving Awareness Month and in conjunction with The Casey Feldman Foundation, EndDD.org, and 60 for Safety’s End Distracted Driving Student Awareness Campaign – will offer high school teens an educational, yet sobering glimpse into the tragic results that can occur when driving distracted. Take a look at a few facts below, courtesy of distracted.gov:

  • Distracted driving is responsible for more than 5,000 deaths and close to 450,000 injury-producing accidents in the U.S. every year.
  • Text messaging creates a crash risk 23 times worse than driving while not distracted.
  • Drivers who use handheld devices are 4 times more likely to get into crashes serious enough to injure themselves.
  • Sending/receiving a text will take a driver’s eyes from the road for an average of 4.6 seconds – the equivalent of driving the length of an entire football field, including end zones, at 55 mph.
  • Driving while using a cell phone reduces the amount of brain activity associated with driving by 37%.

Media is invited and highly encouraged to attend this event. For more information, please contact Jocelyn M. Muller at (757) 963-2800 or by email at [email protected].
