The End Distracted Driving (EndDD) program was featured in the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) report highlighting state policy, enforcement, and education initiatives that have been successful at targeting and educating teens on the often life-altering consequences of distracted driving. GHSA, a public-private partnership that includes federal, state, and local governments, is one of the largest and most respected traffic safety organizations in the country. A panel of teen driver experts identified EndDD as a leading program that has had an impact on teen drivers.
EndDD founder Joel Feldman travels across the country along with other trial lawyer volunteers delivering presentations at high schools, colleges, conferences, and independent highway safety programs in an effort to end this risky behavior, not only amongst teens, but everyone who takes to the road. AAJ President Lisa Blue Baron stated:
I am proud to work with Joel and other trial attorneys across the nation,who take the time to educate students, parents, and those who drive, about the dangers of distracted driving. I am even more proud to say that trial attorneys are giving back to their communities and making a difference outside of the courtroom through programs like EndDD.
GHTSA’s report highlighted the trial lawyers’ involvement in the EndDD program noting that there are “…900 volunteer speakers, 800 of whom are trial lawyers who have volunteered thousands of hours to the cause.” Feldman observed:
This report is really great news that our program is having an impact in communities across the U.S. and Canada. I am honored to work with other trial lawyers that care for their communities and take the time to make a difference.
EndDD is one of the leading programs of Trial Lawyers Care, which was established after the 9/11 attacks so that trial lawyers could provide free legal services to individuals and families who applied for federal financial help. More than 1,100 lawyers volunteered. That commitment to volunteerism lives on through the present-day Trial Lawyers Care initiative to highlight the community service of trial lawyers who volunteer and give back to help people in need.
