When a pedestrian walking home from church was hit from behind by a driver, apparently distracted by his cell phone, Action News Jacksonville looked to attorney Leslie A. Goller to provide her comments on whether Florida needs tougher laws against using hand-held devices while driving.

Florida is only one of a handful of states that does not have a law banning texting or hand-held phone use while driving. In the Action News story, Goller said Florida needs to both pass a law and increase public awareness to curb the distracted driving epidemic. Florida is behind the times.

To that end, she and other members of the firm have imple­mented an educa­tional campaign that educates teen drivers about the dangers of distracted driving. It’s part of Terrell Hogan’s End Distracted Driving Student Awareness Initiative that is on-going. This initiative is being expanded to presen­tations to organi­zations, clubs, groups, and companies. With 5,000 lives tragically lost because of distracted drivers, the goal is to save lives by giving presen­tations that share the stark realities of taking a life by driving distracted.

The End Distracted Driving Student Awareness Initiative was created by the Casey Feldman Foundation in honor of her legacy after she was killed by a distracted driver as she walked across the street.
