DON'T DRIVE DISTRACTED!

DON'T DRIVE DISTRACTED!

Welcome to the KidsAgainstDistractedDriving.com Blog

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, nearly 6,000 people died and more than 515,000 were injured on American roadways in 2008 in crashes that involved distracted driving. The problem is growing, and young drivers are most at risk.



KADD was founded by Scott D. Camassar and Stephen M. Reck of the Law Firm of Stephen M. Reck, LLC in North Stonington, CT, to help educate kids of all ages about the dangers of distracted driving. We’re dedicated to responsible driving and keeping kids safe. We don’t want to see kids injured or killed by texting and driving, or by others’ texting and driving. Please join us in this campaign, and go to KidsAgainstDistractedDriving.com and take the pledge today.



THE PLEDGE: "I pledge to not text or use my cell phone while driving. I understand the serious dangers caused by distracted driving and will talk to my family and friends about these dangers, to help make the roads safer for everyone."


Interested in being a KADD sponsor? 100% of all sponsor dollars cover promotion of the site including give-aways and prizes for kids. Contact Scott at 860-535-4040 or sdcamassar@gmail.com for more info.

AAA Focuses on Distracted Driving Dangers

A message from Peter Kissinger, President and CEO of the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety:

In other cases, though, our research shows that many of us really do "get it," but need to shift from an attitude of "Do as I say, not as I do," to one of "leading by example."
