End Distracted Driving

End Distracted Driving

MAJ has partnered with EndDD (End Distracted Driving) to raise awareness about the dangers of texting, talking and other distractions for drivers. The national EndDD campaign began in 2009 after the death of 21-year-old Casey Feldman at the hands of a distracted driver. Joel Feldman, Casey’s father, with the help from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, 60for Safety, Joel’s law firm, Anapol Schwartz, and others worked to develop a science-based presentation that would engage teens and maximize the likelihood of changing attitudes and behaviors. "As a father whose daughter was killed by a distracted driver, I have seen first-hand the devastating effect that reckless decisions on our roadways can have." The program has already reached 172,000 students and drivers in 41 different states through a personalized, interactive presentation about the dangers of distracted driving.

Through the partnership, MAJ’s members are encouraged to deliver a customized EndDD presentation in schools across the state in a concerted effort to raise distracted driving awareness. Training and all presentation materials will be provided. The program includes a Family Safe Driving Agreement that outlines safety steps. Presentations have already been held at Stevenson University, Bryn Mayr School for Girls, and Notre Dame Prep in Baltimore. To find out more download the MD presentation.
