Commit to Quit

Why did we start this program?

We launched this campaign in September 2011 with a public service radio campaign aimed at teen aged drivers. Because we are a personal injury lawyers we see firsthand the devastation that texting and other forms of distracted driving can cause. Research shows that people under the age of 24 are the most likely to text and drive. Because new drivers are inexperienced, they are also the most at risk to becoming involved in a car crash. We initiated our program with the goal of making young people aware of the risks and encouraging them to make the choice to not text and drive.
