End Distracted Driving in Nova Scotia

I received a very kind note today from one of the teachers at Bicentennial JHS about the presentation we gave to the students a few weeks ago.

Talking with the students at BJHS

"Thank you again for your dynamic presentation to our students two weeks ago. You handled them really well and they took in the importance of what you had to say. Your presentation had an impact on me, too. I drive every day and am consciously trying to focus more on the road and let distractions wait!"

In the last 4 months I have been able to give this presentation to more than 1600 students at 14 schools throughout HRM. My goal for next year is to give this presentation to every high school and junior high school in HRM. I'm recruiting volunteers to give this presentation to schools in other parts of Nova Scotia and I have teamed up with Trial Lawyer Associations across the country to get the message out across the rest of Canada.

I have to say my volunteer work with EndDD.org has been a great experience. I have met lots of bright young students, had some very interesting discussions and I think I have learned as much as the kids have learned.

What more information? Read my article The Deadly Consequences of Distracted Driving (and what you can do to help)
