“Faces of Distracted Driving” Video Shown in Driver’s Ed Class

The video produced by Casey’s father, Joel Feldman, which is being featured on the U.S. Department of Transportation’s website to bring awareness to distracted driving, as well as EndDD.org, is now being shown to a new generation of drivers. A driver’s education class in Reading, PA will view the video in order to highlight the now all too common problem of distracted driving.

After the video was passed along amongst friends and colleagues, a high school driver’s ed teacher viewed it, and began showing it to his classes. Additionally, a local bank in Reading will sponsor “Distracted Driving” signs for the high school parking lot that the school has chosen to display after watching the video.

“There’s nothing I like better to do than to talk about Casey,” Joel Feldman said, in an interview to NBC40. “There’s nothing I like better than to do something where people will remember Casey and this seems like a great way to remember Casey and have Casey’s life and death make a difference.

“Given that I couldn’t bring Casey back, the next best thing is to do some good in her memory.”
