We, at Terrell • Hogan, are honored to support MADD’s efforts to combat impaired driving. MADD set the model for saving lives. Keeping our First Coast roads safe is a team effort. Drunk, drugged and distracted driving are all preventable, and all too often, they are deadly. It’s not just texting- talking on the phone, and paying attention to dashboard video displays – are all examples of distractions that can take your eyes and brain away from the only job you have behind the wheel: driving. Mere seconds can ruin everything.
We strive to educate our community on the dangers of distracted driving. We provide presentations to employers and employees in various industries, business groups, neighborhood and civic organizations, and schools. Whether it’s a first-time presentation, a refresher, or for new hires, safety is all our concern. If you would like to schedule a free virtual distracted driving presentation for your business, organization or school, or know someone who may be interested please call 904-722-2228. Windy Foden will be happy to get you scheduled.
