Distracted Driving Awareness Presentations

Distracted Driving Awareness CampaignAs part of Terrell Hogan’s Distracted Driving Awareness Campaign, we’re pleased to offer two presen­ta­tions: one for the workforce and one for teen drivers (End Distracted Driving). Distracted Driving: Topic on First Coast Connect

To date, the Terrell Hogan Distracted Driving Awareness Campaign has reached over 7,200 teens and adults on the First Coast through its presen­ta­tions.

Presen­tation for the Workforce

Motor vehicle crashes are the #1 cFor The Workforceause of work-related deaths in the U.S. and distracted driving is playing a larger role in them.

Why

With almost 25% of crashes estimated to involve cell phone use, it’s important employers consider adopting policies about cell phone use while employees are driving. Cell phones have caused employers’ liability to spike.

What It’s About

The hour-long presen­tation explores how addressing cell phone use while driving is imper­ative for protecting both the public’s health and employers’ bottom lines. It covers the risks of distracted driving, strategies and solutions to combat it, legal liabil­ities and other serious conse­quences such as: civil liability for personal injury or wrongful death, criminal charges, property damage, loss of a license, insurance rate hikes and produc­tivity loss.

Financial Stakes

With new changes in the legal landscape, the financial stakes are even higher for companies and drivers. Attendees will hear about recent court cases that hold employers and employees respon­sible when distracted driving causes a wreck, from civil lawsuits to punitive damages and criminal charges. Wayne Hogan predicts it’s just a matter of time before Florida prose­cutors begin treating texting like drunk driving, and bring manslaughter charges when texting while driving causes a death.

Corporate Cell Phone Policy

The presen­tation explores the issues involved in creating and imple­menting policies addressing cell phone use and identifies policies used by some companies.

Presentation for Teens: End Distracted Driving

Why We Need It

End Distracted DrivingDistracted driving is an epidemic on our roadways. Thousands of lives are tragi­cally taken each year by drivers who are texting, talking on their phones or engaged in other distracted behavior while behind the wheel. According to an AT&T survey, 43% of teens admit to texting while driving.

What’s Covered

Our End Distracted Driving Student Awareness presen­tation gets the message out to teen drivers early, before bad habits form. We hope to help save lives by sharing the stark realities of how taking a life by driving distracted can ruin their futures. We also offer strategies on how to get a distracted driver to stop unsafe behavior while riding as passenger.

Who Inspired It

The program was created by the Casey Feldman Foundation and EndDD.org, in honor of the 21 year-old college student, who lost her life after a distracted driver struck and killed her in a crosswalk as she legally crossed the street.
