AAJ’s Distracted Drivers Education Program

The Law and You

This segment of The Law and You features Eugene, Oregon personal injury trial lawyer Lara Johnson discussing the national initiative to end distracted driving with teenagers.

JOEL: This is Joel Block for The Law and You with Eugene attorney Lara Johnson. Lara, cell phones and driving are unfortunately part of our culture, especially with teenagers. I understand that your firm is involved with a national initiative to reach teens about distracted driving.

LARA: That’s right, Joel, as a parent of two teenagers, I am especially concerned that vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teens–nearly three times higher than any other age group. Distraction is believed to contribute to more than 50% of teen crashes. Our firm is part of a national initiative to stop these senseless tragedies. End Distracted Driving is a program that is interactive, science-based, and contains a mix of poignant and humorous videos to engage teens. This program is free and is recognized by traffic safety experts as one of the most effective for teens.

JOEL: Thanks Lara. To learn more about this Distracted Driving Program and to schedule a speaker, visit CorsonJohnsonLaw.com. The Law and You is part of Corson & Johnson’s work to Make Communities Safer.
